Description
From one of the greatest living historians and the "conscience of American education" (Diane Ravitch) comes an incomparable representation of Western civilization. From Dawn to Decadence chronicles a detailed account of our history since 1500, from what Western Man wrought from the Renaissance and Reformation down to the present day.

Broad in scope but specific in detail, this work of art offers dazzling portraits of leading figures, from Shakespeare to Rabelais, Leonardo to Marcel Duchamp, and many others. Written with style and grace, wit and humor, cultural icon Jacques Barzun covers such compelling topics as "Puritans as Democrats", "The Monarchs' Revolution", and "The Artist: Prophet and Jester". Only after a lifetime of separate studies could such an inspiring saga be synthesized into one magnificent volume.
