"A welcome and illuminating book."

"Succeeds both in reassessing outdated conceptions of life under the Venetian Republic and in proposing new fields of research... This book contributes substantially toward a more comprehensive, complex view of Venice... This is an exemplary collection of essays that provides a fresh look at five hundred years of Venetian social and political history."

"Provides an excellent survey of the state of current research on the city."

"Chronological width is matched by thematic wealth... The volume is likely to become a landmark in Venetian historiography."

"John Martin and Dennis Romano make a very persuasive and compelling argument for the radical shift in Venetian historiography, from the strands of myth and anti-myth in traditional scholarship to the contemporary image—more complex, more nuanced, and more flexible—developed by the other essays in this volume."

"An exemplary collection of essays which taken together demonstrate not only how much our view of Venice has changed in the past twenty-five years but also how much the Venetians' representation of themselves changed over the half millennium of the Republic's history."

"This important and wide-ranging collection offers a variety of approaches to different aspects of Venetian history; the essays are substantial, based on extensive archival research, and well balanced; and they will prove essential reading for anyone interested in Venice for a long time to come."

"A dramatic reassessment of Venetian history."
