Most of the popular expansive history books think Sapiens think GGS etc are actually organised around powerful central themes that allow the reader to engage with the history being told to have solid reasons to stay engaged with it Unless a reader is only looking to be informed in a general way about what he is reading it is the argumentative flow that keeps himher engaged That is the strength of narrative histories that are also thematic Abulafia has instead focused on exactly what his title says A history of the Mediterranean region which is further circumscribed by limiting it to the human aspect of it ie to the communities that lived on its shores the trade that crossed its surface t

People interact with the sea in a number of ways but they don’t live on it What facts become important which aspects of human civilisation will feature and why?David Abulafia is professor of Mediterranean history at Cambr
