Italian Diplomacy in the Early Renaissance, 1350-1520
Author: Isabella Lazzarini
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
This is the first overall study of diplomacy in Early Renaissance Italy since Garrett Mattingly's pioneering work in 1955.

Communication and Conflict situates and explains the growth ofdiplomatic activity from a series of perspectives - political and institutional, cognitive and linguistic, material and spatial - and thus offers a highly sophisticated and persuasive account of causation,change, and impact in respect of a major political and cultural form.
