A compelling new study of conflicts in Genoa during the 12th century. This book takes on the established orthodoxy about the extent, nature and effects of family conflicts and other civil disputes in medieval Genoa. As Emanuele Ferragina writes in the Foreword, Inguscio "brings history and its complexity back in, and he does so in a clear and empirically informed way." History and violence abound.
