Reviews
Fascinating . . . elegantly told.
Marvelously entertaining. . . . Parks displays a keen observance of people's complexities and malleable motives in this account of the fabled Medici dynasty.--Gilbert Taylor
A model for all economic historians. . . . Parks, who is skeptical about bankers, writes about them with pace, wit, and some passion.
