UK Kirkus Review » The Mediterranean today can seem like a barrier between Europe and Africa, not least to asylum-seekers risking their lives to cross the sea in open boats. However, for centuries it has been a place where cultures meet and mingle, and it is this aspect that forms the theme of this beautifully-illustrated book, which traces Mediterranean history from earliest times to the present day. The volume is introduced by an historical overview and a chapter on the environment. Chronological chapters describe the political history of the region, interspersed with essays setting these events in their social and economic context. Each chapter is written by a specialist in their field, and the whole is edited and introduced by David Abulafia, a historian of medieval Sicily. Presented in an attractive format, the book packed with colour photographs, making it a visually appealing as well as a fascinating read. It will delight anyone with an interest in the Mediterranean.(Kirkus UK)
