4.0 out of 5 stars a very personal approach to the subject, worth reading, 28 Jan. 2012
although not the complete history of the dinasty in here, it makes a good and interesting read. the authors view is very personal, and there are some gaps in the history of the family, but its a good first approach for somebody interested in this subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars INTERESTING BOOK, 10 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Duveen: A Life in Art (Paperback)
For someone interested in art, and more particulary in paintings, this is a very interesting book. Perhaps too many dates, too many names all mixed up in the course of some 40 or 50 years. However, i think it is the best the author could have done. Full of anecdotes, reading this book is also a very entertaining way of learning about the world of art dealers, auction firms and the greatest collectors of all time.
Very recommendable

1.0 out of 5 stars Big Disappointment, 10 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Jesuits (Paperback)
When i bought the book i thought i was going to discover at least a big part of the huge and extraordinary jesuit history. I was wrong. The book lacks too many names, countries, and facts related to the jesuit order. The author emphasises too much on certain people and ignores jesuit saints , politicians, and kings under the jesuit influence. I would also say that the authors sources are very , very scarce.

This is the most detailed and readeable account on the artistic patronage and achievements of the most notable popes and cardinals in five centuries. A "must have" for anyone interested in art and history of Rome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite Biography, 18 Oct. 2010
As with "Constantinople, the city of worlds desire" , Mansel presents an exquisite, highly readable,well researched, and very very recommendable biography. A great discovery, as i couldnt put the book down, and enjoyed every bit of it. The delightful style used by Mansel has no equal when describing the outstanding life of the Prince of Ligne in the fields of diplomacy, literature, army and court life. A joy to read.
