We've recently experienced some of the benefits and pitfalls of using Google Books as a resource for the study of the Neapolitan past. We report on this experience in the June 12, 2009 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education, available today online in an article entitled "Google Books Mutilates the Printed Past"
and accessible free for the next week.
Mutilation — of kingdoms and of scholarship — emerges as a key theme.
This page provides the status of our ongoing online edition of A Documentary History of Naples. Volume 2: Medieval Naples, 400–1400. As we post new readings, chapters, and other features, we'll be notifying our readers through RSS feeds. We hope that the community of scholars and readers interested in the history of Naples will comment, suggest texts and variant editions, readings, and links to important sites.

FOUNDED in 1985, Italica Press publishes English translations of medieval and Renaissance texts and of modern Italian Fiction. We have published some of the most renowned Italian fiction writers as well as many of the leading scholars in medieval and Renaissance studies in the United States. In 1993 we launched our first e-book, an interactive version of the 12th-century "Marvels of Rome." In recent years we have added a series of Italian poetry in translation, presented in dual-language format.
OUR BOOKS are widely known for their elegant design, careful editing, and fair pricing.
ITALICA PRESS maintains two e-mail lists: one for Historical and one for Literary studies. We do not share these names with anyone else. To be added to either (or both) of our lists, contact us at:
