About this book

In this stimulating and authoritative overview, Michael Pearson reverses the traditional angle of maritime history and looks from the sea to its shores; its impact on the land through trade, naval power, travel and scientific exploration. The Indian Ocean moves from a discussion of physical elements, its shape, winds, currents and boundaries, to a maritime history. This compelling survey is an invaluable addition to political, cultural and economic world history.
