The Renaissance a very short introduction by Jerry Brotton ( )
18 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this wide-ranging exploration of the Renaissance, Jerry Brotton shows the period as a time of unprecedented intellectual excitement, cultural experimentation, and interaction on a global scale, alongside a darker side of religion, intolerance, slavery, and massive inequality of wealth and status.-publisher description
A history of the world in twelve maps by Jerry Brotton ( Book )
18 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A fascinating look at twelve maps-from Ancient Greece to Google Earth-and how they changed our world In this masterful study, historian and cartography expert Jerry Brotton explores a dozen of history's most influential maps, from stone tablet to vibrant computer screen. Starting with Ptolemy, "father of modern geography," and ending with satellite cartography, A History of the World in 12 Maps brings maps from classical Greece, Renaissance Europe, and the Islamic and Buddhist worlds to life and reveals their influence on how we-literally-look at our present world. As Brotton shows, the long road to our present geographical reality was rife with controversy, manipulation, and special interests trumping science. Through the centuries maps have been wielded to promote any number of imperial, religious, and economic agendas, and have represented the idiosyncratic and uneasy fusion of science and subjectivity. Brotton also conjures the worlds that produced these notable works of cartography and tells the stories of those who created, used, and misused them for their own ends"--
The Renaissance bazaar : from the Silk Road to Michelangelo by Jerry Brotton ( Book )
19 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jerry Brotton's controversial study of the Renaissance disputes the consensus notion of a single Renaissance. The author argues that this was a vibrant period when western and eastern cultures mixed to great mutual benefit
Trading territories : mapping the early modern world by Jerry Brotton ( Book )
20 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this generously illustrated book, Jerry Brotton documents the dramatic changes in the nature of geographical representation which took place during the sixteenth century, and suggests that they tell us a great deal about the transformation of European culture at the end of the early modern era. He examines the age's fascination with maps, charts, and globes as both texts and artifacts that provided their owners with a promise of gain, be it intellectual, political, or financial
Global interests : Renaissance art between East and West by Lisa Jardine ( Book )
15 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Lisa Jardine and Jerry Brotton raise questions about the formation of cultural identity in Western Europe. Through an analysis of the circulation of art and luxury objects, the authors challenge the view that Renaissance culture defined itself in large part against an exotic, dangerous, always marginal East. Featuring more than seventy illustrations, including many in color and some published for the first time, their book provides fascinating insights into the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Durer, Holbein, Pisanello, and Titian."--BOOK JACKET

Mapping the world ( Visual )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This three-part series tells the epic and beautiful story of cartography, from the discoveries of the early cartographers to the tools that have given us Google Earth and in-car satellite navigation. Each episode addresses a basic technological challenge of map-making and, in the process, sheds light on the wider world: on issues of power, romance, wars and exploration. In tracing the seismic shifts in the history of map-making and understanding what drove the map-makers themselves, this series ensures that we will never look at a map in the same way again.

Le bazar Renaissance : comment l'Orient et l'Islam ont influencé l'Occident by Jerry Brotton ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La Renaissance a vu des changements majeurs, dont les impacts dessinent encore le monde dʹaujourdʹhui. Jerry Brotton raconte cette période remarquable dans un livre qui place lʹépanouissement européen dans un contexte révélateur. Cet ouvrage se place au cœur dʹun grand débat et a été largement relayé comme une contribution à faire connaître, et comprendre, la part que lʹIslam a joué dans la Renaissance européenne. Cʹest par le contact de lʹEurope avec le reste du monde, et particulièrement avec le riche et cultivé Orient, que la Renaissance a pu être ce quʹelle a été. Les européens se percevaient alors dans le miroir de lʹOrient, lʹEmpire Ottoman leur a fait prendre conscience de leur position relative, et cʹest durant cette période par exemple quʹils se sont pour la première fois nommés "européens". Ce livre est le premier récit concis et clair de la Renaissance comme un phénomène global, et non comme un évènement purement européen

"Maps aren't simply about getting from A to B. As this program shows, they are often condensations of a particular culture's worldview, and, as such, a map forms a revealing snapshot of a moment in history." -- Container
