oxivecakyhub.ga: Enrico Dandolo and the Rise of Venice (): Thomas F. Madden: Books
Madden Book Published by: Between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries, Venice transformed itself from a struggling merchant commune to a powerful maritime empire that would shape events in the Mediterranean for the next four hundred years. In this magisterial new book on medieval Venice, Thomas F. Madden traces the city-state's extraordinary rise through the life of Enrico Dandolo c. The scion of a prosperous merchant family deeply involved in politics, religion, and diplomacy, Dandolo led Venice's forces during the disastrous Fourth Crusade — , which set out to conquer Islamic Egypt but instead destroyed Christian Byzantium.
Yet despite his influence on the course of Venetian history,we know little about Dandolo, and much of what is known has been distorted by myth. The first full-length study devoted to Dandolo's life and times, Enrico Dandolo and the Rise of Venice corrects the many misconceptions about him that have accumulated over the centuries, offering an accurate and incisive assessment of Dandolo's motives, abilities, and achievements as doge, as well as his role—and Venice's—in the Fourth Crusade.
Enrico Dandolo & the rise of Venice
A scholarly work, it gives more detail than the casual reader needs, but the prose is lively and the author has an eye for telling details. It is most valuable for its sympathetic treatmentment of Venetian relations with Byzantium.
The conquest is shown to be a natural, if impulsive response to outrages committed against Venice by the Eastern Empire. Jul 30, Sally rated it liked it Recommends it for: I visited Venice a year ago, and knew very little about its history.

Even though I may never go back, I wanted to know more about Venice, it's archipelago and it's maritime supremacy. This is a study of one particular Doge, and the books explains Venice's unique republican system of government, and how Venice rose to power and how the 4th Crusade got de-railed and ended up with the European coalition sacking Constantinople.
Although a history, it was still a fascinating read. Feb 16, Joanne M Mooney rated it it was amazing.
