A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: 'This fascinating book provided me with a whole new way of thinking about t he European Renaissance ... While offereing a series of elegant interpretat ions of art objects exchanged between East and West... this is also an epic story of imperial rivalry exploring the ways in which courts jostled for s upremacy through their display of magnificent art objects, many of which ar e beautifully reproduced here' - The Good Book Guide 'Books of the Year' 'C ultural history needs the wider perspective [the authors] enjoin, and, as t heir reflections suggest, it is a mistake to think one can satisfactorily e xplain anything about the European continent - its art, the growth of it sc ience, its social, political or religious history - in ignorance of its clo se relations with its eastern and southern margins. Global Interests is a v aluable corrective to the established tendency to disregard them' - Literar y Review 'impressive ... the discussion is full of remarkable examples ... there is much that will stimulate thought and excite admiration' - Art Quar terly About the Author Lisa Jardine is director of the AHRB Research Centre for Editing Lives and Letters and professor of Renaissance Studies at Queen Mary, University of London.
