John Dee

The Politics of Reading and Writing in the English Renaissance
A major reassessment of one of Elizabethan England’s most fascinating figures


This book challenges the conventional image of John Dee (1527–1609) as an isolated, eccentric philosopher. Instead, William H. Sherman presents Dee in a fresh context, revealing that he was a well-connected adviser to the academic, courtly, and commercial circles of his day.
