The volumes in the Short Oxford History of Italy will show how Italy's history too is being rethought in these terms. Its new histories are being constructed around the political, cultural, religious and economic institutions from which Italy's history has drawn continuities that have outlasted changing fortunes of foreign conquest and invasion. They also enable us to write a history of Italians that is fuller and more continuous, recovering the previously 'forgotten' centuries and geographical regions while revising our understanding of those that are more familiar.

This seems to be one of the few books in this series which hasn't received a review by someone complaining that it's not narrative history and assumes a fair amount of knowledge. That said, for someone who hasn't read the reviews, it's worth pointing out that a book like this requires more work than reading through a narrative account. If nothing else, you'll need to refer to the timeline at the end a lot to orient yourself, and you'll need to be able to infer the meaning of a lot of terms on the fly. With regards to the latter, I'm still baffled as to why the glossary at the end is so small. There are a lot of specialist terms in these essays (from Medieval culture, from the study of the early church, and from archaeology). I'm no stranger to Classical history but often found myself confronted with terms that weren't glossed. I prefer this sort of history myself, but then I had far too many years of grad school.

As for the essays themselves, some are great (e.g. the chapter on the Rural Economy), others well illustrate the belief that Italian scholars can't see the forest for the trees (e.g. the chapter immediately following the latter). Since new archaeology looms so largely in the study of this period, you'll get many pages of details on this location, then that location, then that location, etc. In the hands of some authors, all that can be framed in a way that doesn't make it simple, but makes it comprehensible at a higher level. For some chapters though, one is confronted by a long series with a single limp sentence here and there meant to somehow give one a perspective. One is also left wondering sometimes why some topic is actually significant. The final chapter is a good example of this. It has a point, but not a strong one, and not a well argued one. Moreover, the author repeats it something like 6 times without ever giving a good sense of why the ability to catalog changes in epigraphic script really matters.

In an effort to understand more of the historic development of Italy, I picked up this book from the local library. The book covers a wide range of time, from 476-1000, and each chapter is an essay covering a particular aspect of this period. The book is definitely not all inclusive, and it is not meant to be. The essays do give the reader a good sense of what is happening and how Italy is changing through the time period.

Overall, I found the essays to be well-written. Some of the essays are drier than others, making them more difficult to focus your attention upon. I like the idea of the subject specific essay though, allowing the reader to understand an aspect as a whole for a period before passing onto the next.

The book concentrates mostly on Northern and Central Italy. Southern Italy does not receive the same attention. From the text, I would gather that there is less material about the area available to study this period. Perhaps as more archaeological evidence is found and local histories are gathered, we can understand more about what happened in this area in this period (Note: the Byzantine Empire controlled the area for much of this period, as opposed to the Lombards, Goths and Carolingans farther to the north).

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more about this period. It is important to understand the transitions that a culture makes if you are going to understand why a land is how it is (and if that makes sense to you, good).
