Book Presentation by Lincoln Paine
23 January 2014, 12:30-1:30, BAL 9024, Burgess Room
Lincoln Paine will be on hand to discuss his highly praised new book on maritime history, The Sea and Civilization: A Maritime History of the World (New York: Random House, 2013).
"The Sea and Civilization presents a fresh look at the global past. Bringing to bear a formidable knowledge of ships and sails, winds and currents, navigation techniques and maritime law, Lincoln Paine offers a lively tour of world history as seen from the waterline. The result is a fascinating account, full of little-known episodes and novel insights. A major contribution." —Kären Wigen, Stanford University
