About this item

Stein, a specialist in naval history and the history of technology, offers a two-volume encyclopedia that traces the role of the sea in world history from antiquity to the present, emphasizing the sea as a place connecting diverse peoples and for facilitating diplomacy, trade, and travel, as well as in exploration and war, scientific and technological advances, and artistic and literary work. Organized chronologically and by nation or culture, chapters include overviews of each era's key maritime developments; essays on important seafaring cultures and nations and their interactions with the sea, how it shaped their development, and how uses and views of the sea changed; shorter entries on topics like explorers, inventors, major events, ports, shipbuilders, ships, and technologies; and primary documents highlighting the observations of explorers, traders, travelers, and warriors, along with sea literature.
