Schevill Ferdinand

The American Ferdinand Schevill (1868-1954) was one of the most important historians of the twentieth century. Schevill spent the majority of his career at the University of Chicago. Among his publications include a textbook on Western European history, History of Florence from the Founding of the City Through the Renaissance (1936) and this book, Siena: The History of a Medieval Commune, first published in 1909. This new edition of Schevill’s classic text has been edited and features a new introduction by the medieval historian, Bradley R. Franco (University of Portland).
