By Richard I. Pervo on May 3, 2014
Format: Paperback
A fine example of history two generations ago, in Crane Brinton era: balanced, literate, written by a person of culture as well as erudition. note, e.g., his discussion of Handel's music.
the period is relatively neglected, as much attention lavished upon prior and subsequent eras, but it was important. R. portrays the era as in transition from medieval to modern.
among noteworthy learnings is the realization that progenitors of market economy were anything but anti-government. they wanted government to do much, such as internal improvements, revision of tolls, and other matters conducive to business.
a rewarding read in a fine series
