Summary
The Sea and Civilization reveals how people first came into contact with one another by ocean and river, and how goods, languages, religions and entire cultures spread across and along the world's waterways. Lincoln Paine takes readers back to the origins of long-distance migration by sea with our ancestors' first forays from Africa and Eurasia to Australia and the Americas. He demonstrates the critical role of maritime trade to the civilizations of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, and the Indus Valley. He reacquaints us with the great seafaring cultures of antiquity like those of the Phoenicians and Greeks, as well as those of India, Southeast and East Asia who parlayed their navigational skills, shipbuilding techniques and commercial acumen to establish overseas colonies and trade routes in the centuries leading up to the age of European overseas expansion. Above all, Paine makes clear how the rise and fall of civilizations can be traced to the sea
