När Europa upptäcker världen: Från antiken till Pax Britannica

Det som brukar kallas upptäckandets tid tar sin början i slutet av 1400-talet och blir startskottet för dagens sammanlänkade värld, men också en av de mer kritiserade epokerna i historien. Den europeiska geografin med sin långa kustremsa är kanske den viktigaste orsaken till att nationerna här utvecklade världens mäktigaste flottor. Men vilka var de politiska och ideologiska drivkrafterna som låg bakom? Vilka vetenskapliga och tekniska framsteg låg till grund för utvecklingen? Vart skulle man och varför? I denna bildrika antologi kartläggs flera aspekter av den europeiska sjöfart och handel som präglade den här händelserika perioden.
