Theodore K Rabb's contemplative book offers a new interpretation of the seventeenth century Europe, focusing on a crucial transition from turmoil to relative tranquility. The book shows, in splendid illustrations, how painters, like writers and scientists, reflected the change that is his main theme - the shift from belligerence to restraint, from upheaval to calm.

Review:


"Fresh and thought-provoking even after nearly twenty years. Even where I disagree with it I still find it valuable, especially as a demonstration of good history and good historical writing. Should provide fodder for hours of productive classroom discussion."--Robert S. Babcock, Hastings College


"Stimulating, concise, and lucid--interdisciplinary approach particularly useful for my students."--A.J. King, University of Pennsylvania


"Thought-provoking and compelling."--National Review


"The most ambitious attempt yet made to see the seventeenth century as a whole."--Times Literary Supplement
