8 This volume —which follows Michael Knapton and Gaetano Cozzi, La Repubblica di Venezia nell'età tnoderna: Dalla guerra di Chiogga al 1511 (Turin: UTET, 1986)—is made up of three significant essays —each of which could be a book by itself. I discuss only Cozzi's contributions here, but Michael Knapton's essay “Tra Dominante e Dominio (1517-1630)” is of great interest and offers an excellent synthesis of the social history of Venice and its relationship to its subject territories in the early modern period. Knapton's study, moreover, is more than a companion piece to Cozzi; it is clear that there is a growing consensus among political, social, and economic historians that the great cities of Italy cannot really be understood without careful attention to the territories they dominated. Finally, Giovanni Scarabella's “II Settecento” constitutes a much needed overview of the history of eighteenth-century Venice. The book treats themes far beyond the competence of this reviewer.

9 Cozzi's major works include i7 doge Niccolo Contarini: Ricerchc sul patriziato veneziano agli inizi del Seicento (Venice: Istituto per la collaborazione culturale, 1958); Paolo Sarpi tra Venezia e I'Europa (Turin: Einaudi, 1979); and Repubblica di Venezia estati italiani: politica e giustizia dal secolo XVI al secolo XVIII (Turin: Einaudi, 1982).
