""Renaissance" reflects the intensely personal and passionate involvement of the author in his subject. In his analysis and his judgments, Graham-Dixon is original, daring, occasionally iconoclastic, and never dull or pedantic. The result is a book both more spirited and more accessible than Kenneth Clark's "Civilization.""--Gene Brucker, author of "Florence: The Golden Age, 1138-1737"
