Aims and Scope
The exploration of sea routes and distant shores has been a crucial aspect of Eurasian history since ancient times. Long before Columbus, seafarers, traders, and conquerors built a thriving network across the Atlantic, the Mediterranean, and the Indian Ocean. This is the first book to consider maritime exploration’s conditions, processes, and effects on political, economic, and cultural developments.
