Details

Paying tribute to the ‘essential contribution of sailors and their ships to the evolving history of the human world’, Brian Lavery’s history begins with the early Polynesians’ outrigger canoes on the Pacific, Minoan ships in the Mediterranean and Vikings crossing the north Atlantic. He traces the progress of traders, explorers, conquerors, slavers and colonizers, and describes historic maritime events such as the invention of the sea clock and the Cuban Missile Crisis, up to today’s container ships, pirates and refugee ‘boat people’.
