The FUP Editorial Board – composed of eminent scholars covering a wide range of humanistic and social disciplines and natural, technological and biomedical sciences – evaluates the proposal and either accepts it for publication, rejects it or decides to request a revision from the author. The decisions of the Board are based on a peer review; this is carried out by the members of the Board, where appropriately qualified, or is entrusted to one or more academic referees external to the Board.

Publication proposals can be submitted to the FUP Editorial Board directly by the author, or by a recognised Scientific Committee following submission of a plan approved by the FUP Editorial Board.
The ultimate decision regarding publication nevertheless lies with the FUP Editorial Board.

The names of the members of the FUP Editorial Board and those of the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue (over thirty) are published in the online FUP Catalogue.
The members of the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue are also indicated on a specific page of each publication (rear of half title page).

Firenze University Press: Peer Review Process from January 2011

Publication proposals are submitted to the FUP Editorial Board by the Editorial Manager, together with an initial editorial, technical and economic evaluation. The FUP Editorial Board – composed of eminent scholars covering a wide range of humanistic and social disciplines and natural, technological and biomedical sciences – evaluates the proposal and either accepts it for publication, rejects it or decides to request a revision from the author. Where revision is required, compliance with the requested changes is monitored by the editorial staff. In the event of discrepancies, the publication is submitted anew to the FUP Editorial Board for a final evaluation.

Publication proposals can be submitted to the FUP Editorial Board directly by the author, or by a recognised Scientific Committee belonging to the FUP Catalogue.

The individual submissions are subject to dual peer review (one by a member of the FUP Editorial Board and one by an academic referee external to the Board).
Publications proposed by the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue must be accompanied by the opinions of two referees: one peer review by a member of the proposing Committee and one by an academic referee external to the Committee. The ultimate decision regarding publication nevertheless lies with the FUP Editorial Board, which must give its approval.

Without prejudice to the required approval of the FUP Editorial Board for all publication proposals, in exceptional cases the requirement for external peer review may be waived in view of the intrinsic nature of certain works.

The names of the members of the FUP Editorial Board and those of the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue (over thirty) are published in the online FUP Catalogue. The members of the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue are also indicated on a specific page of each publication (rear of half title page). The peer review criteria of the above Scientific Committees are also published in the online FUP Catalogue.

Abstract

This book contains the proceedings of the first international conference organised by the Centro di Studi sulla civiltà comunale of the University of Florence, and offers a fine overview of the contribution made by international historiography to the history of the Italian Comunes. One of the most significant periods in the country's past is addressed here by some of the leading international specialists through the reconstruction of the approaches, issues and outcomes of the principal foreign historiographies (German, French, American, Spanish and English). The result is a fairly articulated picture of how the civilisation of the Comune has been treated and appraised over time outside Italy. Consequently, the book is offered as an updated tool of historiographic reflection and as a useful yardstick for studies devoted to the European urban world.

Abstract

In a perspective of local history that combines problem analysis with a reconstruction accessible even to non-specialists, this book addresses the economy, society and institutions of a rural community of the Tuscan Apennines. The community of Raggiolo is portrayed over a long span of time ranging from the late centuries of the Middle Ages up to the end of the eighteenth century. We are thus offered a picture of the Casentino mountains which reveals - in the centuries-old intertwining of mountain economy, social equality, sharing of the management of the local administration and the goods belonging to the collectivity - one of the main reasons for the resistance to change which was to mark the end of the ancien regime.

Abstract

This book is a collection of seven essays with an introduction by the editor. The contributions propose first-hand studies of some of the less researched aspects of the history of the Italian communes: the practices of conflict, vendetta and pacification. The variety of different ways of resolving conflicts brought to light by the studies for the various civic and rural contexts (Mantua, Parma, Pisa, Lucca, Florence and the Valdinievole), between the beginning of the thirteenth and the mid fourteenth century, indicate how normal such social relations were, the widespread nature of the feud and the legitimisation and centrality of the culture of the vendetta within the political arena of the commune. The book hence offers a precious contribution for a review of the prevalent narration of the vendetta in late mediaeval Italian society.

Abstract

The volume approaches Cuba as a nation that hosts a convergence of extraordinary global developments and, in turn, projects itself onto the world's major cultural, political and economic processes. From different perspectives, ranging from architecture and music to politics and economics, the twenty-one essays presented here embrace the multifaceted interactions between Cuba and foreign imperial strategies during the 19th century, the troublesome formation of national political cultures in the first half of the 20th century, and the multiple global aspects of some of Cuba's choices from the Cold War to the first decade of the present century.

Abstract

During the 13th Legislature of the Italian Republic the phenomenon of parliamentary mobility, that is of the passage of MPs and Senators from one political group to another, assumed significant dimensions in terms both of the number of representatives involved, and in terms of quality, in view of the creation of governments through the decisive contribution of deserter MPs, sometimes joined together in specially created groups. The aim of the work is to review the principles of political representation, retracing their genesis and their translation in the constitutional and legislative arena and in parliamentary regulations, testing the viability of the traditional reconstructions of the national representation of the parliamentarian.

Abstract

The conception and creation of the children's magazine "Pioniere" was an integral part of the extensive educational plan implemented by the PCI in the fifties for the construction of a new society. This book studies the issue of the dialogue set up with the young readers which evolved through a series of innovative initiatives, but was nourished above all by the post column run by the editor Dina Rinaldi. This was pivotal in the "education of feelings" and destined, in the optic of the "Pioniere", to the training up of the new generations.

Abstract

The reception and popularity of the work of Emmanuel Joseph Sieyès has gone through different and erratic phases. Nonetheless, in recent years there has been a remarkable revival of interest in the Abbé's thought. This book is intended to exploit this Sieyès-renaissance, proposing a reconstruction of the constitutional doctrine of the abbot in the light of the latest interpretative acquisitions. The guiding thread of the analysis is the acknowledgement that, underlying the main political-constitutional proposals of Sieyès, we can glimpse a profoundly rationalist philosophical substructure. After presenting the nucleus of this philosophical approach, the book proceeds to shed light on the coherence linking the main constitutional structures upon which the abbot was working in the course of the early years of the Revolution. It focuses in particular on the concepts that contributed to make up the basic grammar of modern and liberal constitutionalism: representation, citizenship, constituent power, rights of man, the division of the powers and the control of constitutionality. The idea is that, by pursuing this approach, it is possible to arrive at an overall picture of the constitutional doctrine of the abbot that reflects both its systematic quality and its originality.
