Crow With No Mouth : Ikkyu : Fifteenth Century Zen Master
Copper Canyon Press
Something to crow about.
"Only one koan matters," Ikkyu writes, "you" (p. 67). "Believe in the man facing you now" (p. 21). While meditating on a boat when he was 27, Ikkyu Sojun--also known as "Crazy Cloud" (1394-1482), was enlightened when he heard a crow call (p. 9). As a Zen Master, he was considered sort of an eccentric rake (p. 13), and he never pretended to be much else. He loved sake. He loved women. "The ...
Medici Money: Banking, Metaphysics, and Art in Fifteenth-Century Florence (Enterprise)
W. W. Norton & Company
A fascinating extended essay, not a history or a novel
Reading the other reviews, I see three camps. Reviewers who wanted a serious history disliked the book for being derivative, unprofessional and jumping around among topics without covering any of them well. Reviewers who wanted a straightforward story were annoyed by the literary language and complex narrative line. Reviewers who wanted a literary evocation of the life and times of the Medici ...
Painting and Experience in Fifteenth-Century Italy: A Primer in the Social History of Pictorial Style (Oxford ...
Oxford University Press, USA
A Must-Read If You Are More Than A Casual Art Student
I really can't add more to Robert W. Moore's insightful review. However, I feel a need to counterbalance the ranting reviews posted by others on this page. In particular, the one-star reviews listed here are simply embarrassing. Clearly, these reviewers do not represent the intended audience for this book. It's not Michael Baxandall's fault that these reviewers were unable or unwilling to ...
Religions of the Silk Road: Overland Trade and Cultural Exchange from Antiquity to the Fifteenth Century
Dr. Richard Foltz
First-Rate World History
This is a lovely book. Artfully written and insightfully presented, Foltz does an outstanding job of covering a variety of complex topics in a relatively short space. I first got a copy via interlibrary loan while doing research, but liked the book so much I ordered a copy just to have it handy.

Maine: An Explorer's Guide (Fifteenth Edition) (Explorer's Guides)
"...An Explorer's Guide" is the tops
"Maine: An Explorer's Guide" was my first purchase in the series. Since then, I have used "Vermont..." and "Maryland...". While perhaps not ideal for novices in a region, they are excellent for one who has some familiarity with the state one is visiting. The descriptions of history, geography, cultural and recreational offerings; and the listings of inviting, independent restaurants, shops and ...
The World in 1492
Henry Holth & Co (J)
I bought this book some time ago to use in our homeschool. I pulled it off the shelf this morning to preview it in anticipation of using it soon. I was very disappointed, to say the least. Since Jean Fritz is such a popular author, I had high expectations. While reading the chapter about Europe, I was shocked to discover her poor writing style. Her sentence construction, in particular, is weak ...

The Origins of the Inquisition in Fifteenth-Century Spain
New York Review Books
Even less confusion
It's true that Benzion Netanyahu is not the former Israeli PM; the former Israeli PM, however, is his son. Notice the poignant dedication to his other son, Jonathan, who was one of the Israeli commandos on the Entebbe raid.

7 reviews, 2010
A Balm For Dreamy Heads And Flagging Spirits
L. Frank Baum's spectacularly illustrated Little Wizard Stories Of Oz, written for a younger audience than the books in the official Oz series, are the perfect introduction to Baum's utopist fairyland. Containing characters not only from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz but from the second and third titles, The Marvelous Land Of Oz and Ozma Of Oz, the 169-page volume is composed of six short pieces, ...
Confronting the Bully of OCD: Winning Back Our Freedom One Day at a Time
Fifteenth Street Publishing, 2004
won back freedom
A very couragous step and a very encouraging book. She wrote with truth and gave helpful advice. Personally I took the advice and examples to heart for understanding, my boyfriend of two years suffers from OCD and anxiety. Lots of writers of such books tell and give off of facts and what theyve seen not experianced. As for Linda Maran she knows first hand and from experiance and this will help ...
If You Were There in 1492: Everyday Life in the Time of Columbus
Our seven year old son read this book quickly and enjoyed it a great deal. He only likes to read non-fiction and this book had substanitally more text than pictures, which is not usual in non-fiction books aimed at this age range. The book contained lots of information about life in Spain in the Middle Ages that I did not know, including some challenging information about the Spanish ...

Power Packed Grimoire
This is a very interesting and a very well done Grimoire. Besides a translation, it also includes the original Latin Version, and photos. from the text illustrating the various Magick Circles being used. What I especially liked about this Grimoire is that includes a large amount of Magickal material that is unique to this book and not available from other sources. Also the book gives the ...
Worlds Together, Worlds Apart: A History of the World from the Beginnings of Humankind to the Present (Second ...
W. W. Norton & Company
Worlds Together, Worlds Apart provides a fantastic account of world history that, while not leaving out many important details, looks past the facts and avoids the all too common Euro-centric view of world history. Instead of merely recounting the facts of world history, region by region, in chronological order, Tignor takes a much different approach. The text examines each region of the world in ...
