Review: The Civilization Of Europe In The Renaissance

User Review  - Colleen - Goodreads

Dense and packed with detail. Great historical reference but it took me over a year to read it. It's better to scan and then read just the sections you are most intersted in. Overall the author does well in communicating the upheaval of the Renaissance. Read full review
