In handsomely crafted prose, and with the grace and authority of his extraordinary gift for narrative history, William Manchester leads us from a civilization tottering on the brink of collapse to the grandeur of its rebirth--the dense explosion of energy that spawned some of history's greatest poets, philosophers, painters, adventurers, and reformers, as well as some of its most spectacular villans--the Renaissance"--Cover, p. 4.Hide synopsis

Manchester's reputation as a researcher and writer takes a big hit in the groin with this book. His research is sloppy, his characterization of historical figures is profoundly soap ...
All things considered, "A World Lit Only by Fire" is not William Manchester's best book. Not by a long shot.
Those who claim there's nothing new here are right. On the other hand, much of what Manchester tells here is still not well-known to the religious laity nor even to the proverbial "man on ...
