The Sea and Civilization by Lincoln Paine

This book's full title is The Sea and Civilization: A Maritime History of the World. The author of this book really knows his stuff. The book is well written and quite absorbing. He is well versed in the sea and ancient history as he is in what is happening on the seas today. Lincoln Paine has his own site.

There is a wonderful review of this book at The Wall Street Journal by John Darwin. There is also another very good review of this book at the Telegraph by Ben Wilson.

A Portland station in Maine has a short interview with Lincoln Paine. The US Naval College shows a lecture by Lincoln Paine on this book. Lecture is almost an hour long. The speech is around 37 minutes and there is a Q and A at the end. Here Lincoln Paine talks about Maritime History as human ecology.

On my website is how to find this book on Amazon if you care to purchase it. See Paine. Also, this book review and other books I have reviewed are on my website at Book Reviews.
