Summary

This book explores cross-cultural encounters in the context of exploration, migration, and trade across the world's oceans. From the early migrations of Austronesian peoples to the increasing globalization of recent centuries, it examines trans-oceanic communication and exchange as a major motor of transformation in World History, providing readers with better appreciation of how oceans connect human societies, rather than separate them.
