Recommends it for: Anyone willing to take on a dense text.

Given that The Making of the Middle Sea won the 2014 Wolfson Prize it can safely be assumed that it merits a five star rating on Goodreads. The question is whether or not it happens to be the kind of book that is of interest to you.
Nothing that I have read in the last 18 months has given me any more pleasure. This book is an outstanding synthesis work that relates a compelling narrative of the peoples living on the shores and Islands of the Mediterranean Sea from 1,800,000 to 500 B.C. The

This is a thoroughly enjoyable, fascinating and thought provoking overview of the prehistory of the Mediterranean, the Middle Sea of the title, with sufficient detail to allow you to understand the local impact of larger trends and plenty of interesting facts.
Written for the educated layman, I had read a couple of books about Ancient Egypt, Ancient Mesopotamia and archaeology, so had a little knowledge before coming to this excellent synthesis. It is written using some technical terms, but these

This is an extremely ambitious book, which manages to deliver what it promises. Reading it is like a historical, or perhaps rather literary, equivalent to the aesthetic experience of watching Altdorfer's The Battle of Alexander at Issus. In epic and majestic sweeps the reader is carried like a soaring sea-bird above the intricate and fascinating texture of the history of the Mediterranean. Unafraid of painting with great brush-strokes, the author also delves on minute details of great interest ...more

Excellent, can't recommend highly enough. The best book I've ever read on the subject.

Well this was a slog of a book. It is first and foremost, an incredibly ambitious project to summarize, in a big picture kind of way, the complete history of the Mediterranean, from before man left Africa, up to 500BC. There are some really excellent bits of info in this book, as well as, as I think the author intended, a new way to look at the settlements and migration patterns throughout this time period. A particularly in teresting segment for me was to learn that the Mediterranean was closed ...more

This provides such a wealth of information about current thinking on human evolution, genetics, history and migration that the fire-hose comes to mind. Broodbank poses great questions: why did humans go east, via the Near East, instead of trying to cross the Middle Sea (Mediterranean)? Why would hunter-gatherers accede to emerging sedentary agricultural approaches, instead of maintaining their life-style? And the questions I'm waiting to hear answered: is it possible Celtic culture moved east ...more

Full of amazingly interesting information but at times the writing is unnecessarily difficult.
