Describes the far-reaching effects of the discoveries made in the New World on the foundations and authority of the Old World.
Grafton's book is about the identity of the Americas--an identity hewn out of intellectual conflict, just as much as military or political conflict. -- David McKitterick New York Times Book Review In his eloquent disquisition...Grafton demonstrates his mastery of the world of the Renaissance text and his skills as a historian of scholarship, scholarly processes, and intellectual debates. -- Larry Ceplair Los Angeles Times Book Review Beautifully presented and delightful to read. Grafton's prose has a rare combination of qualities, smooth-flowing and hard-hitting...The concentrated power, the broad erudition, the impeccable aim which characterize Grafton's vignettes are enviable. -- Felipe Fernandez-Armesto London Review of Books Grafton is massively erudite and scrupulous as a scholar; at the same time he has command of a relaxed narrative style: his book about the reconfiguration of knowledge in Renaissance Europe is aimed at the general reader and no doubt finds its mark. -- Mary Baine Campbell Arion
