«Enlightening and fascinating... Mr. Strathern's canvas is immense, yet the picture he paints is never less than pellucid, and packed with lively detail and fascinating facts.»

John Banville, Wall Street Journal

«From art and astronomy to medicine and exploration, The Other Renaissance covers a lot of ground, and the author's biographical style is invariably engaging... Lively and wide-ranging.»

Financial Times

«Lively... Strathern's entertaining cast of often garrulous northerners, their origins ranging from Paris to rainy London, discovered things that made us what we are today... He describes their contributions in clear-sighted and effective prose, making complex ideas instantly intelligible... Full of pleasing anecdotes, and myths are duly dispatched along the way.»

The Times

«Entertaining... A rich and varied depiction of the extraordinary culture of northern Europe in the early modern period. Strathern has a good eye for striking details and arresting anecdotes... Vivid and interesting.»

Literary Review

«Deeply fascinating»

Kirkus Reviews

«A remarkable work»

The Week

«Following the great minds of the [Renaissance] period in insightful biographical chapters, Strathern's book sets the record straight on this second revival.»
