Agostino Inguscio explores 12th-century Genoa in new book on family and civil conflicts

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. For this reason, Inguscio’s analysis sheds a light on the study of conflict and violence in medieval Europe without the intellectual arrogance to try to demonstrate a de-contextualised theory.” The work enriches our understanding of this time of crucial transition in Europe and the use of history and economic methods to explain it.
