Read in June, 2009

I really enjoyed Fernandez-Armesto's fresh look at "civilizations" as an antidote to the eurocentric view that is still taught in school. (Full disclosure: I've taught it! That's one reason I was interested in this book in the first place.)
The only disappointment was the ending, in that the book was published in 2001, so describes the future of civilizations in a pre-9-11 world.
