Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

Baldassare Castiglione (1478-1529) - conte di Novilara. Italian humanist, diplomat and courtier, famous for his IL LIBRO DEL CORTEGIANO (The Book of the Courtier, 1528), which was translated into many languages and made Castiglione the arbiter of aristocratic manners during the Renaissance.

Review:

Great Ideas... is the right name for these slim, elegant paperbacks... They are written with precision, force, and care. -- The Wall Street Journal

Penguin Books hopes to provide an economical remedy for time-pressed readers in search of intellectual sustenance. -- USA Today
