Antonio Calabria presents an original study on the finances of the Spanish Kingdom of Naples. The Cost of Empire is an academic study that mixes quantitative and qualitative data on government spending, finances, borrowing, and taxation, and the author masterfully connects fiscal developments of Naples to larger issues, such as the decline of Italy and Spain or the Thirty Years’ War.
