Abulafia traces with zest, and an eye for telling details and anecdotes, the sweep of Mediterranean history from the time of Troy to the mid-19th century. He argues that the great port cities -- Alexandria, Trieste, Salonika and many others -- prospered in part because of their ability to allow many different peoples, religions and identities to co-exist within sometimes very confined spaces. He also brilliantly populates his history with identifiable individuals whose lives illustrate with great immediacy the wider developments he is describing.
