New Books on Spinoza

Of late, there have been two new, written-for-wide-audience books on Spinoza: Matthew Stewart's The Courtier and the Heretic: Leibniz, Spinoza, and the Fate of God in the Modern World and Rebecca Goldstein's Betraying Spinoza : The Renegade Jew Who Gave Us Modernity. Two somewhat useful reviews on them can be found in in Salon and in San Francisco Chronicle. That said, I do not expect either work to match Steven Nadler's Spinoza : A Life in terms of comprehensiveness and quality. Fxs
