Language and Statecraft in Early Modern Venice -  cover

Language and Statecraft in Early Modern Venice 

This book demonstrates that a crucial component of statebuilding in Venice was the management of public speech. Using a variety of historical sources, Horodowich shows that the Venetian state constructed a normative language - a language based on standards of politeness, civility, and piety - to protect and reinforce its civic identity.
