About this book

Identifies and analyses the most significant features of the relationship between man and his physical and biological environment in the Mediterranean region over two thousand years. As the first major study to modify the earlier work of Braudel, this book assesses the extent to which the Mediterranean world can be considered a homogeneous unity.
