So refreshing to find such an unbiased and honest assessment of the period. It treats all aspects of the period for what it was: a period of scientific and artistic advancement, but also a period of corruption and conflict.
It's especially good for taking off the gloss that many historians put on the period as being one that was uniquely wonderful. After all it produced Leonardo, Michelangelo, Shakespeare and Gutenberg. It represents the dominance of western culture and civilisation and it embodies all that is good about western (christian) ideology. Not at all true of course, but the reverence shown by many historians to the period of the renaissance is quite bewildering.
This book avoids that and presents the period as it actually was, warts and all.
