In this comprehensive survey, William Hudson explores the forces responsible for bringing about the Renaissance, which he describes as the West’s “transition from the medieval to the modern world.”

Voyages of discovery, inventions, the revival of classical learning, and the advent of science contribute to the intellectual upheavals of this creative period, which are reflected in its literature and art. Hudson focuses on the one thread of continuity which he sees as both the seed and the fruit of this exciting era: the awakening of secular humanism and the emergence of the individual. This history gives the listener a lucid, perceptive analysis of the splendid Renaissance.

    " My Mom did not have "The Story of the World" books when I was in school. However I read all four of them a few years ago and still really enjoyed them. I will definitely be using these books when I am homeschooling my own children someday. "

    " I don't remember really learning any history in school. I've always wanted to read a history book that was simple and easy to understand. This fit the bill, maybe because it's written for "the classical child." I learned a lot. "
