John Dee: The Politics of Reading and Writing in the English Renaissance

University of Massachusetts Press, 1995 - 291 ページ
This text presents a reassessment of the career and cultural background of John Dee (1527-1609), one of Elizabethan England's most interesting figures. Challenging the conventional image of the isolated eccentric philosopher, Sherman situates Dee in a fresh context, revealing that he was a well-connected adviser to the academic, courtly and commercial circles of his day.
