Very much appreciated here and abroad for some thirty works of cultural history and criticism, master historian Jacques Barzun has now fixed in a continuous narrative the sum of his discoveries and conclusions on the whole of Western culture since 1500.In this account, Barzun explains that the Western forged man of the Renaissance and reform so far in the double light of his time and our pressing concernsIt presents characters and incidents with his extraordinary literary style and grace, highlighting those who have “Puritans as Democrats,””Revolution of the Monarch,””The Artist Prophet and Jester” -show the recurring role of major themes throughout the electronic reverse auctions.Five hundred years of triumphs and defeats are a source of saga inspiration that modifies the current impression of a long history of oppression by white European men.Women and their actions are important, and freedom (even in sexual matters) is not an invention of the last decades.And when Barzun’s rates present him not as an outcome but a decline, he is in no way a prophet of misfortune.Instead, it shows decadence as the creative novelty that will burst forth next day or next day.Only after a lifetime of separate studies covering a vast territory could a writer create with such ease the synthesis displayed in this magnificent volume
