Braudel revisited : the Mediterranean world, 1600-1800 by Geoffrey Symcox( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fernand Braudel (1912-1985), was a leading French historian and author of, among other books, the groundbreaking The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean World in the Age of Philip II (1949). One of the founders of the Annales School in France, Braudel insisted on treating the Mediterranean region as a whole, irrespective of religious and national divides. Braudel's new historiography rejected political history as the dominant discipline and espoused a 'total history' or a 'history from below' that would tell the story of the vast majority of humanity hitherto excluded from the grand narrative. At the time of the book's appearance, this premise was revolutionary
On the causes of the greatness and magnificence of cities, 1588 by Giovanni Botero( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first treatise ever written on the sociology of cities, Giovanni Botero's On the Causes of the Greatness and Magnificence of Cities (1588) marked a radical departure from previous literature on urban centres. It provided a revolutionary analysis of how cities function, and of the political, economic, demographic, and geographic factors that cause their growth and decline. Noteworthy too is Botero's original use of sources in his analysis: moving beyond familiar classical and biblical references, he drew remarkable insights from reports by travelers and missionaries about cities in the non-European world, especially in China. Though seminal in the history of urban studies, On the Causes of the Greatness and Magnificence of Cities has not been available in a modern English translation until now. This edition--which includes an introduction by Geoffrey Symcox on the intellectual context within which Botero's treatise was conceived--is a must-read for anyone interested in urban life and the development of cities."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2005 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is a census enumeration of the city of Turin, Italy, in 1705. The census was ordered by Duke Victor Amadeus II as the city prepared for a siege from part of the French army, as ordered by King Louis XIV. A house-by-house survey of all inhabitants was conducted to assess how many men were able to bear arms and how many people there were to feed. All of the inhabitants, including both citizens and immigrants streaming into the city from the surrounding countryside to escape the invaders, were listed by name, along with their ages, family relationships, birthplaces, occupations, dwelling places, and any weapons kept in the household. Fifty cantonieri (ward-captains) were assigned to survey the 122 isole (city blocks). The information for 15 of the isole are absent. This study also includes a WinZipped archive of AtlasGIS files, which can be used to produce maps of Turin, Italy
