Land and Economy in Baroque Italy: Valpolicella, 1630-1797
This is a total economic history of the Valpolicella region of north eastern Italy in the 17th and 18th centuries. Drawing on the detailed and extensive research of local government, law and church in the region, Peter Musgrave has written on account of the agricultural, industrial and commercial life of the Venetian terra firma which is one of the first to take an Annaliste, structural approach to Italian history.
