This excellent publication contains fourteen different and very interesting stories all of them have been perfectly written; the content of the volume is actually proving the fact that the maritime history is forcing people to get their concepts of time and space significantly re-thought, and same applies to their knowledge.

The book will help people properly understand the past and also let them clarify how exactly the globalization processes took place. In fact, this is a brilliant collection of nice essays examining the whole history of the oceanic culture together with the effect all around the planet. The authors of the book have managed to gather the pirate captains, island culture and even Chinese junks making an attempt of charting the ways human beings did exploit the possibilities that were offered to them by the maritime environments.

The book seeks to transcend the oceans and stress the so-called interconnectedness between sea and land. In short, we may say that this book is forming a valuable worldwide contribution to the ocean history. Needless to say that the content of this publication is deservedly expected to be of great use for all people with the interest in maritime history.
