Product Description

Review

In this book, William Caferro ably connects his interests in economic history with his studies of mercenary companies during the fourteenth century in Italy.

(Carla Sodini H-Italy, H-Net Reviews)

This is an exceptionally important book that will repay careful reading as it shows how military stress far short of all-out war can, in effect, unmake a state.

(Bernard S. Bachrach Historian)

The relation between Mercenary Companies and the Decline of Siena is a major theme that has long needed its historian. William Caferro offers still more in this realistic appraisal. He provides a thoughtful and challenging examination of Sienese public finance and administration in the second half of the fourteenth century that presents valuable insights into hitherto unrevealed continuities in the history of a fascinating Italian city republic.

(William M. Bowsky, University of California, Davis)
