Brook guides us through studies of numerous, mostly Vermeer, paintings and objets d'art; and from each one chooses what he calls a 'door' to help us understand the rapidly globalizing world of the seventeenth century. A clever, imaginative, and thought-provoking book.

seniális témaválasztás! Rendkívül ollvasmányos formában kelti fel a figyelmet a világkereskedelem, globalizáció, földrajzi felfedezések, népek-nemzetek keveredése és egymásra hatása irtánt. Igazi élmény az olvasása, nagyon jó a nézőpont és hihetetlen távolságokat fog át térben, ill. emberi sorsok és nemzettörténetek alakulása kapcsán.
