"This is the kind of book that is all too rare in modern historical scholarship. It is at once meticulously researched, granitically organized, perceptively argued, and eminently readable. The last is no mean achievement when one considers the subject matter. Banks, investments, credit, and debt may be important for our understanding of medieval and Renaissance Italy, but as anyone who has balanced a checkbook or read an annuity report can attest, it can all be dreadfully boring. Not so here." -- Thomas FMadden, Sixteenth Century Journal
"This volume is an outstanding example of meticulous, readable, wide-ranging scholarship... [It] is careful... brilliant study." -- John E. Dotson, Speculum
"This book is a mine of information and a most reliable guide to the Venetian Money Market. For many years to come it will constitute an essential tool for an serious study related to the history of Venice and its economy." -- Benjamin Arbel, Mediterranean Historical ReviewCríticas:
"I cannot emphasize enough the originality of this research for Italian studies in general as well as its painstaking and virtuoso qualities. The book will stand as the unavoidable model for the scholars who eventually do the history of banking and the public debt in other major commercial capitals." -- Richard Goldthwaite, The Johns Hopkins University
