Summary

"The best thing about this book is its overarching thesis, the concept of a Columbian exchange. This provocative device permits Crosby to shape a lot of familiar and seemingly unrelated data into a fresh synthesis. . . . The implications of this interplay between novel biological and social forces are fascinating." Journal of American History

Author Biography

Alfred W. Crosby, Jr., is Professor Emeritus of American Studies, History, and Geography at the University of Texas, Austin
