Reviews

Praise for Mary Hollingsworth's The Family Medici:
"Vivid and well-researched. Hollingsworth's implication is correct and praiseworthy - that we should remember the Medici for what they were, not for what they wanted us to think they were."--Christian Science Monitor
"Hollingsworth's clear, concise family chronology serves as an excellent introduction or handy reference guide to one of the Renaissance's most infamous families."--Publishers Weekly (starred)
"Highly readable. A revisionist view of the celebrated Medici family."--Library Journal
"A fascinating warts-and-all history of the rise and fall of the Medici. Hollingsworth effectively debunks the myths surrounding this legendary family. A vital acquisition for anyone who studies the Renaissance and seeks the true role of the Medici in the history of Florence."--Kirkus Reviews (starred)
