Format: Paperback
The general public would benefit from reading this, but the main audience is college students. It's good as both synthetic study and primary source reader. Focusing on salt, silk, spices and sugar highlights diverse international connections in premodern times. "TT" is rather short: ideally it would be c.180-200 pages, with the extra length devoted to further original source materials. The authors/editors contextualize the evidence well by giving enough background data, though the maps could be more precise. Their text is very readable, even sprightly and witty at times, though some errors creep in. A potential drawback is that the price has gone up and may rise again, reducing its value for readers on a budget (who isn't nowadays?). Still, it generally remains a good investment from a worthwhile series.

I was required to buy this book for a college course but am very glad to own it because it is a great resource and very interesting. I do wish that it wasn't so full of highlighting (I wouldn't say that the book was in as nice of a condition as it was described), but the primary sources are fabulous and I enjoy the writing style.
