The Great Sea : A Human History of the Mediterranean Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

For over three thousand years, the Mediterranean Sea has been one of the great centres of civilization.

David Abulafia's The Great Sea is the first complete history of the Mediterranean, from the erection of temples on Malta around 3500 BC to modern tourism.

Ranging across time and the whole extraordinary space of the Mediterranean from Gibraltar to Jaffa, Genoa to Tunis, and bringing to life pilgrims, pirates, sultans and naval commanders, this is the story of the sea that has shaped much of world history.
