Braudel weaves his metanarrative out of so much detail of daily life outside of the typical events found in diplomatic history.

Braudel's scope embraces the natural world and material life, economics, demography, politics, and diplomacy.

  • I read this to augment my participation in the Society for Creative Anachronisms with a full curiosity of history and wishing a deeper knowledge of how people actually lived in this period. This was insightful, intriguing, eye opening, thorough, and scholarly. It brings fascinating facts like none of the numerous books that I have read in my research, from ice-cream in Florence, to weather patterns and cash flow affecting trade, to surprising watercraft and piracy. Trade created Renaissance Europe, which is documented as it evolved. I read it and read it again finding my imagination explode. This trove of information showed me my ignorance of my previous conceptions. You can open the books up just about anywhere, begin to read and find stunning information. I stumbled upon a paperback edition, read it and then bought the hardcover... because it is such a keeper.

  • Braudel's Pov is as much about the LAND near the mediterranean as it is about the sea. He explains cultivated & uncultivated lands, crops, who cultivated it, what grows at what altitude, & why this was important to the battles that occurred on the sea. It's at times dry, but so is a vineyard before it's planted. Whether it's grains, wines, hay, or watering systems, he explains this essential economic evolution in great detail.

  • I got this used, so I knew it wouldn't be perfect, but the cover is completely torn apart and it smells like smoke. Definitely not what I was expecting.

  • Excellent service and wonderful product. Folio Society books are perhaps the finest in print today.

  • I have written a review of the first volume of Braudel's history of the Mediterranean, and here will only say that it is necessary to read this second volume in order to appreciate what Braudel began in the first volume. The second volume is the more typical "history of events", but as Braudel concludes -- and correctly so in my opinion -- the history of events is founded on geography, demographics, and social and economic history. Braudel builds this foundation in the first volume, and the two volumes must be read jointly in order to fully appreciate Braudel's astounding accomplishment.

  • A truly glorious work, invaluable as a reference source for anyone doing research on the period! It has only one flaw: the author has provided no index.

  • Broad,deep and insightful. History as literature.

  • I have almost completed the reading of Volume I, and the arrival of this volume is good news. Volume I has been extraordinary. Like A History of Civilizations by Braudel, this book goes well beyond most historical writings.

    As to the physical copy delivered, it was in pretty good shape, but with some stains, making me doubt the "NEW" description on the website.
