The Seventeenth Century and the Dawn of the Global WorldBook - 2008
This masterful work expands our appreciation and understanding of how our global village really began in the seventeenth century. Brook demonstrates that the lust for luxury goods-- porcelain, silver, and beaver pelts, drove expansion. Using several objects to illustrate the web of trade and the explosive changes that they wrought, Brook gives us a remarkable view of the expanding world in this thrilling history.
