Indian Ocean: A History of People & the Sea Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kenneth McPherson shows that for millennia the Indian Ocean had a profound influence on the lives of the people who lived on its shores. Fishermen, sailors and merchants traveled its waters linking the world's earliest civilizations from Africa to East Asia in a complex web of relationships.
