Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

The name Borgia is synonymous with the political corruption, greed, incest, and murder that was rife in Renaissance Italy. Rodrigo Borgia-Pope Alexander VI-the first man to have clearly bought himself the papacy, and two of his infamous illegitimate children-Cesare and Lucrezia-were the three central figures of the Borgia dynasty, notorious for seizing power, wealth, land, and titles through bribery, marriage, and murder. Marion Johnson plots the dynasty's dramatic rise from its beginnings in Spain to its occupation of the highest position in Renaissance society, examining how far the myth of the Borgias is borne out by historical facts. Behind the gaudy horrors, she concludes, lie people of great talent and achievement, possessors, even, of moderate virtues.

About the Author:

Marion Johnson made her home in Rome while working for the British Foreign Office, where she discovered the Borgias legend.

Condizioni di spedizione:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required. For lighter-weight items, I will refund excess payment for shipment. For overseas customers, this can be quite significant. Standard US shipping is media rate, but books will be shipped by the most economical means, unless otherwise specified by the buyer. Heavy books are generally so noted in item description, and may require additional postage. Insurance is highly recommended for items costing more than $50, but will be sent uninsured at buyer's risk. Items will be well packed; packing may include recycled materials. Outside of the US: Please note, the post office has discontinued the inexpensive 'surface mail' rate. Shipping options are 'First Class' or 'Priority Mail' and rates are dependent upon the destination country. International rates are available at USPS.com for reference purposes. International buyers please note: the financially-troubled United States Postal Service raised its rates in January, 2013, significantly; shipping costs reflect this.
