8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Dana Marlin on December 9, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is exactly what it claims to be - a portrait. It does not claim to be comprehensive. Being from Malta I am very interested in the history of the mediterranean. I found that this book gave an excellent overview of all the major events that took place in this fascinating sea. This book (and all the books by Ernle Bradford for that matter) provides those that are intersted in the history, but not in being bogged down in details, with an enjoyable and (in my opinion) quite accurate picture of what took place. Furthermore, Ernle Bradford knew the mediterranean better than most library historians for he spent 30 years of his life sailing in this sea. He Paints a lively and entralling portrait of the mediterranean. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
i cant believe i am the first - were i not i may not have bothered - but this is arguably a great book so i must, and am told, regarded as a classic my yachties in the med
this man is scorned by historians (does dorky things like quote encyclopaedias?) & his style can be amateurish, but hey - rarely dull
great choice of subject - a/ the med is the hub of most history & b/ the bridge between east & west so he can wander off in either direction - whatever is interesting - his passion tho is naval technology - which is fine as it was the determiner of power.
so - read all about it - the suez canal of 500bc, the phoenicians rounding the cape of good hope in 500bc, the greatest scammer of all time - the doge of venice at 80 (he went along) conned the crusaders into sacking a fellow christian city - the greatest prize ever - constantinople - for a few crumbs - and got a nice bribe from the mayor of alexandria as well for diverting them from this original target
