About the Author

Robert K. Batchelor is associate professor of history at Georgia Southern University. He lives in Savannah, GA. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.


"Unapologetic in its claims and exhaustive in its research. . . . Batchelor has issued an important challenge to his field, and historians of England cannot but take it up." ― Renaissance Quarterly

"Batchelor builds a solid case for English success in translating the Asian world as an indispensable factor in London’s growth as a global entrepôt for goods and knowledge alike. The Selden map in particular emerges as a key repository of information on the deep structures of Asian geography and commerce as they existed in the first centuries of European seaborne contact. We are indebted to Batchelor for translating its profundities to us." ―
Journal of British Studies

"Batchelor’s work is a well researched contribution to the field when it comes to contextualizing and tracking the changes in Europeans’ travel logs, literary works, and maps, such as Cabot’s and Selden’s map or Hakluyt’s and Ogilby’s publications on Asia. Additionally, through his analysis of these products of European knowledge on Asia, Batchelor’s work aims to push forward the field of world history by arguing that changes in Asia brought about a new, more global, London." ―
Ming Studies --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
