Nevertheless, Blood from your Children is a well-researched and elo- quently written book. Carton has a clear and captivating writing style that is full of passion and insight, and his extensive experience in the region and his understanding of Zulu language and culture provide for a nuanced picture of African society and the rebellion itself.
His analysis of the historiography is sound if too brief. Extensive useful information in the glossary, bibliography, and index is provided, and the maps are clearly rendered and informative. Some of the impressive photographs, however, have not been well reproduced, but the publishers are responsible for this shortcoming. In the final analysis, Blood from Your Children is as important for its keen insights into intergenerational relations within Zulu families as it is for its examination of the generational dimension of the rebellion.
Carton has established clearly the need for further inquiries into the nature of generational tension, and he has provided us with a new understanding of patriarchy. Aran S. Creating the Florentine State: Peasants and Rebellion, — Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, Samuel Cohn consistently has posed provocative questions while adopting new approaches to rich archival sources of late Medieval and Renaissance Tuscany.
Creating the Florentine State is a valuable book concerning the role played by the Renaissance state in the mountainous outreaches of the Florentine dominion. The author argues against the view that mountain populations are politically and economically inert, changing little over time, and locked by geography and by seasonal economic activities such as transhumance into predictable cultural patterns.

This opinion was popularized by Fernand Braudel among 20th-century historians, it commonly was held by geographers and anthropologists long before Braudel, and it remains a common way of explaining or writing off such phenomena as banditry, feuding, and ultimately economic underdevelopment in the upland regions of the Mediterranean world. By and large, however, there has prevailed a view of the mountains as an environment of little change. In this book, which is based substantially on little-explored fiscal records and tax legislation, Cohn shows impressively that in the second half of the 14th century, people living in mountainous areas of the Florentine dominion suffered not so much from a general plague-induced economic crisis as from unusually oppressive fiscal measures that drove many of them to flight and others to revolt.
Peasants in the Florentine contado were apt to move to recently acquired parts of the distretto Pistoia, Volterra, Arezzo where local tax bur- dens were fixed at low rates rather than calibrated to the growing needs of the capital city. Mountain areas came in for heavy taxation in the 14th century, with the result that mobility was even more pronounced.

Peasant wealth in the plains as measured in tax surveys called the capi di famiglia remained constant in the late s, but Cohn shows that in the mountains it was reduced drastically. This item is available to borrow from 1 library branch. Creator Cohn, Samuel Kline. Contributor NetLibrary, Inc.
