Sinopsis: Book by Paine Lincoln

Críticas: "The most enjoyable, the most refreshing, the most stimulating, the most comprehensive, the most discerning, the most insightful, the most up-to-date--in short, the best maritime history of the world."

--Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, author of "Millennium: A History of the Last Thousand Years
"
"Paine deftly navigates the complexities of global culture to create an eminently readable account of mankind's relationship to the sea. Both profound and amusing, this will be a standard source for decades to come."

--Josh Smith, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, editor of "Voyages"

""The Sea and Civilization" presents a fresh look at the global past. Bringing to bear a formidable knowledge of ships and sails, winds and currents, navigation techniques and maritime law, Lincoln Paine offers a lively tour of world history as seen from the waterline. The result is a fascinating account, full of little-known episodes and novel insights. A major contribution."

--Karen Wigen, Stanford University, author of "A Malleable Map

""'I want to change the way you see the world.' This brave ambition is brilliantly realized by Lincoln Paine in this single volume. Thoroughly researched, clearly argued, eminently accessible--we have at last a responsible and persuasive explanation of the inextricable connection between the ocean and world civilization."

--Peter Neill, Director, World Ocean Observatory

"Even though the Earth's surface is 70% water, historical narratives are usually land-centered. Paine ("Ships of the World") shifts emphasis from land to water in order to correct this imbalance, an approach that takes the reader through history via the seas . . . Paine's highly detailed work encompasses a wide array of topics, from trade and the influence of the sea on warfare and political coalitions, to ship building techniques through the ages, to piracy and slavery. . . . Paine has compiled an invaluable resource for salty dogs and land-lubbers alike."
--"Publishers Weekly," starred review

"Elegantly written and encyclopedic in scope, with an expert grasp of the demands of seamanship in every age, "The Sea and Civilization" deserves a wide readership. For landlocked historians, it will be a powerful stimulus to dip their toes and perhaps their pens in saltwater and for readers a forceful reminder that the urge to "go down to the sea in ships" has shaped civilizations and cultures in every period and in every part of the globe."
"The Wall Street Journal
"
"A magnificently sweeping world history that takes us from the people of Oceania and concludes with the container. In contrast to most books on maritime history, the majority of "The Sea and Civilisation" covers the history of the world beforeColumbussailed the ocean blue and at least as much of the narrative focuses on Asia as it does on Europe."
" "Ben Wilson, "The Telegraph
""Paine is full of such illuminating facts. . . [He] forestalls any western bias with excellent chapters on Asian expansion. . . 'The sea held no promise for slaves, coolies, indentured servants, or the dispossessed', Paine reminds us, and while it is 'fickle and unforgiving, it is a fragile environment susceptible to human depredation on a scale unimaginable to our ancestors'. And yet, whose heart does not sing out when they see the sea? Our last resort, it still holds its promise and its power."
" "Philip Hoare, " New Statesman
""Herzog once remarked: 'The feeling crept over me that my work, my vision, is going to destroy me, and for a fleeting moment I let myself take a long, hard look at myself . . . to see whether my vision has not destroyed me already. I found it comforting to note that I was still breathing.' That same quality of an all-consuming vision oozes from Paine s book.His passion is to tell the story of the sea. History is seldom written with that kind of passion today."
Gerard DeGroot, " The Times
"

""The Sea and Civilization" meticulously and systematically reconstructs the maritime history of the world from diverse historic records, archaeology, contemporary travelogues, languages, literature, religious texts and folklore. . . In this book we get to see some of the beautiful and interesting plates without traversing the museums and libraries of the world. . . That oceans teach us, above all, about the unity of human existence on this planet seems to be the take away from "The Sea and Civilization.""
"The Hindu" (India)"
