    NEW The Great Sea A Human History of the Mediterranean ô David Abulafia After reading Norwich's A History of Venice I looked at his other books and saw one on the Mediterranean that looked interesting However most of the reviews for it said it was okay but Abulafia's The Great Sea was much better so I put that on my wishlist instead and got it for ChristmasIt's a large expansive book covering from prehistory to the current day 2010 Abulafia purposefully tries to limit the scope of his book by sticking to subjec

    NEW The Great Sea A Human History of the Mediterranean ô David Abulafia Summary The Great Sea A Human History of the Mediterranean My three star rating isn't strictly fair to the content of The Great Sea which is very good but rather with the difficulty I had in reading it It took me two weeks because I would repeatedly lose focus and have my mind wander only to realize that I'd been reading and rereading the same section multiple times without ever really ta

Read & download ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free à David Abulafia David Abulafia à 2 Read & download The Great Sea A Human History of the Mediterranean Read ë 2 Die Geschichte des Mittelmeeres ist die Geschichte unserer ZivilisationDas großartige opulente Werk zur Geschichte des Mittelmeers seit mehr als 3000 Jahren ist das Mittelmeer eines der Zentren der zivilisierten Welt An seiner geographischen Achse entscheiden sich bereits zu Zeiten Trojas politische und kulturelle Neuerungen die von weltpolitischer Bedeutung sind Von hier aus werden neue Reiche erobert Grenzen verschoben Weltanschauungen durchgesetzt Irrfahrten begangen es gab Schrecken Kriege Fehden Erstürmungen und Tragödien Aber es existiert ebenso die andere Seite und This is a human history of the Mediterranean Sea from over 10000 years ago to 2010 I saw that this had received a favorable review in the Economist so I got a copy but was hesitant to plunge in it is a rather long volume I started it last Friday and could not put it down It tells a coherent and entertaining story of five different seas that seems on target provides a believable overall narrative and yet includes all sorts of tidbits about people places and odd facts that makes books like this so rewardingMy biggest concern was that this would be a huge survey that did not hold together well a sort of mega cliffs notes It is a survey but the whole is much than the parts For example I learned much about the rise of Spain to eventual European dominance in conflict with France the Italian commercial republics and the Ottoman Empire For another example the author did a good job in showing how the maritime life of the Mediterranean was important in how countries developed such as why Northern Italy prospered and moved into manufacturing and high value added enterprises while Southern Italy did not The role of merchants pirates and intellectual wanderers are well developed to show how they made the Mediterranean into an integrated area rather than just an array of kingdoms and statesWhile the author is very learned he is also very wise and strikes a good balance between detail and general themes Nearly every section of the book has links to an entire scholarly community with its own issues and debates The book tends to offer the main line story in each area while at the same time indicating to readers where disagreements exist On the areas where I was better informed it was very clear how Abulafia was crafting this story and he does a fine jobDon t try to speed read it and have some maps and google handy to check up on the wealth of details that you will encounter here I thought it was very rewarding and the greatest proof of this was that the book held my attention once I started I did not have to worry about getting sufficiently far in the book so that I would finish That took care of itselfTT
