The way in which a society expresses grief can reveal how it views both intense emotions and public order. In thirteenth-century Italian communes, a conscious effort to change appropriate public reaction to death threw into sharp relief connections among urban politics, gender expectations, and understandings of emotionality. In Passion and Order, Carol Lansing explores a dramatic change in thinking and practice about emotional restraint. This shift was driven by politics and understood in terms of gender. Thirteenth-century court cases reveal that male elites were accustomed to mourning loudly and demonstratively at funerals. As many as a hundred men might gather in a town's streets and squares to weep and cry out, even tear at their beards and clothing. Yet these elites enacted laws against such emotional display and proceeded to pay the fines levied against themselves for violating their own legislation. Political theorists used gender norms to urge men to restrain their passions; histrionic grieving, like lust, was now considered "womanish." Lawmakers drew on a complex of gendered ideas about grief and public order to characterize governance in ways that linked the self and the state. They articulated their beliefs in terms of rules of decorum, how men and women need to behave in order to live together in society. Lansing demonstrates this change through a rich combination of sources: archival records from Orvieto, Bologna, and Perugia; political treatises; literary works, notably Petrarch's letters; and representations of grief in painting and sculpture.

It records experiences that made Yvonne and Victors lives unique by describing happenings that were poignant and rewarding. It starts with Yvonnes early trips to Italy as a teenager, and then her return to live there, as a mother with three small children while Victor was off working in remote eastern Turkey. Escaping for three weeks allowed him to write about discovering with Yvonne the charms of Western Europe. Ten years later, Victors part-time assignment to explore the Italian aerospace industry led to other travel adventures, and a six-week family odyssey that wandered through Italy, Switzerland, France and England. Years later, he became a frequent traveler to NATO countries, and his air mile awards allowed Yvonne and he to share many pleasing adventures. His career path next led to being appointed to a four-nation consortium, and they moved and lived in Munich for four years. Their lives were then filled with many exciting activities, as they learned to live and enjoy life as Europeans.
