Editorial Reviews

Review

Finding the roots of opera in the history of science is a task that would daunt even a polymath of Renaissance stature. Yet in The Culture Wars of the Late Renaissance, Edward Muir plausibly explains how the skepticism taught by a professor at the University of Padua in the early 17th century fostered a musical revolution in neighboring Venice--and much else besides. (Francis X. Rocca Wall Street Journal 2007-05-05)

Muir's small book (hard-covered but paperback in dimensions) set me thinking. It's a remarkably readable, cross-disciplinary study. (Clifford Bartlett Journal of Japanese Studies)
