Buchbeschreibung Harpercollins US Jul 2011, 2011. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Daniel Waterhouse is a brilliant thinker, yet knows that his genius is dwarfed by that of his friends Isaac Newton, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, and Robert Hooke. An adherent to 'pure' science, he rejects the arcane tradition of alchemy, even as it gives birth to new ways of understanding the world . Jack Shaftoe began his life as a London street urchin and is now a reckless adventurer in search of great fortune. The exploits of Half-Cocked Jack, King of the Vagabonds, are quickly becoming legendary throughout Europe . Eliza is a young woman whose ingenuity keeps her alive after being set adrift from the Turkish harem in which she was imprisoned as a child. Her great beauty, bravery, and intelligence will take her all the way to the inner sancta of Europe s royal courts . Set against the backdrop of the late 17th and early 18th centuries, Quicksilver plays out during a singular nexus point in history, when humanity was transformed as rationality triumphed over mysticism, monarchy was overthrown, markets become free, and religious tolerance gained ground over harsh oppression. It is, simply, a masterpiece, and establishes Neal Stephenson as one of the preeminent talents of our -- or any -- age. 960 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780060593087
