Aimed at armchair readers and travellers, this book offers a chronological history of the Mediterranean from ancient Rome – the only state to control its entire coastline – to the two world wars and the Middle East conflict. It records naval battles between Christians and Ottomans, and the rise and fall of the maritime empires of Genoa and Venice, while also acknowledging the role of the sea in trade, tourism and migration.
