Marea cea mare. O istorie umană a Mediteranei, de David Abulafia. O carte-expediţie

Marea cea mare. O istorie umană a Mediteranei este o istorie care impresionează ca amploare şi care se ocupă de viaţa popoarelor care au trăit, s-au războit sau au intrat în relaţii de comerţ şi schimb în jurul Mării Mediterane. De la navigatorii greci și fenicieni, istoricul avansează către episoade cu cruciaţi şi navigatori temerari, cu bătălii decisive, cu negocieri „murdare“ cu piraţii sau cu expediţii navale
