The world encompassed : the first European maritime empires, c. 800-1650 by Geoffrey Vaughn Scammell( Book )

32 editions published between 1981 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this authoritative study, first published in 1981, Geoffrey Scammell traces the course of European expansion between around 800 and 1650, during which time the world known to western Europeans was enlarged in a way unparalleled before or since. The book takes a broad historical perspective, linking the classic age of European expansion to its medieval antecedents. The Norse reached North America in the tenth century, Italian missionaries and traders were established in China in the high Middle Ages, and during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, in some of the greatest voyages ever made under sail, Iberian explorers crossed the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and established footholds in the Americas, Africa and Asia. This is a stimulating and perceptive study, based on wide-ranging research, which makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the influence of empire on both colonial and metropolitan societies."--Provided by publisher

"Les 26 contributions réunies dans ce volume renouvellent quelques-uns des secteurs de l'histoire maritime, en attirant l'attention sur la méthodologie, les recherches récentes, les problématiques nouvelles, la recherche interdisciplinaire, l'archéologie, l'iconographie et le roman. On suit pendant deux millénaires quelques-uns des nombreux changements qui ont affecté les façades océaniques des cinq continents, en Amérique latine comme à Madagascar et dans l'Océan Indien, sur les rivages de la Méditerranée comme dans le commerce eurasien. Quelques thèmes demeurent privilégiés, les navires et la navigation, les marines de guerre et les politiques navales des États, l'exploitation des littoraux et les installations portuaires, les marchandises et les frets, les tonnages et les mesures, les assurances maritimes. Les marins, voyageurs, pèlerins, missionnaires, marchands, tous ces gens de mer occupent une grande place dans cet ouvrage, qui traite de la famille, de la formation et des apprentissages, de la santé et des maladies professionnelles, des croyances et des genres de vie. Ce volume qui fait toute sa place à l'histoire des mentalités s'honore de multiples contributions internationales et de la collaboration de quelques spécialistes, médecin, architecte naval..., issus des gens de mer."[source : site de l'éditeur]
