–The New York Times Book Review
"A gripping portrait of late-sixteenth-century cultural history in both the West and the East."
–Natalie Zemon Davis, Princeton University, author of The Return of Martin Guerre
"An extraordinary tour de force, a work of literature and at the same time a remarkable wide-ranging use of historical sources. This is the kind of history that most people in the profession cannot even begin to write."
