More Description

" A] fine, arresting book with a clear and novel thesis and a firm grasp of geography. Good stuff, in short... strongly recommended." --William H. McNeill

"The reader will find here useful information and much food for thought; a book of such a broad scope is rare and has much to recommend it." --Speculum

..." encyclopedic... there is no book quite like this one." --Choice

..." a colorful canvas depicting the torrential movements of Eurasian warriors and merchants on ship-boards and horseback between Atlantic, Mediterranean and Pacific coasts, between streams of accumulated goods and tensions, religious fervor and insatiable greed... "--Ural-Altaic Yearbook

"A healthy antidote to the parochialism that characterizes so much of the run-of-the-mill output of medieval history... " --American Historical Review

Emphasizing geographical, maritime, institutional, and economic factors, Lewis presents a wide-ranging story of the complex rise and fall of civilizations and explores new conceptual frontiers in the study of world history.
