Historian Brook uses the Delft of Johannes Vermeer as the reference point for examining the expansion of globalization in the seventeenth century. Brook identifies objects or persons in 17th century Dutch artworks that link Delft with the wider world. Since Brook specializes in Chinese history, it’s not surprising that most of the paths he follows lead to China.

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.
