No jacket.To what extent can we speak of a distinctive Mediterranean urban culture in the early modern period? In this collection of 13 essays, scholars from diverse backgrounds - literary, art-historical, cultural history, archaeological, economic and socio-architectural - demonstrate both the range of collective urban experience in the Mediterranean and the complexity of the nature of urban culture at that time. The book is in four parts: Neighbours and Neighbourhoods; Religion, Ethnicity and Minority Groups; On the Margins; and Cultural Representations.
