The Boundless Sea

A Human History of the Oceans

David Abulafia

  • A history on the grandest possible scale: a global narrative driven by the vast oceans, and the smaller seas connected to them, as the basis of human civilization and development
  • Focuses on the people who moved back and forth, the goods they brought, and the cultural influences that came with them
  • Proves that there was a broad linear development toward integration among peoples despite occasional interruptions
  • A book that could only have been written by someone of David Abulafia's stature
