Venice 800 - 1600. The Serenissima as Global Power

This book analyses the prominent role of Venice in the medieval world system and the world trade, Venice's rivals, its colonies, internal stability and political strength. The loss of the supremacy, the political decline after an independence of thousand years and the stagnation of the sixteenth century finish the study.

Venice passed through various periods. The time of the supremacy from 1150 to 1500 is considered to be the absolute heyday, economically, politically and militarily. Afterwards Venice lost this rank, but not the national integrity and the significance as a regional player.

Whoever follows the traces of the Venetian empire will start to mull over the organisation of such a mercantile network. How did the masterminds manage to control this interconnected mediaeval world system when in those times even the transport of news and goods took such a long time?
