The Mediterranean has nurtured three of the most dazzling civilisations of antiquity, witnessed the birth or growth of three of our greatest religions and links three of the world's six continents. This book tells the story of the Middle Sea itself - a story that begins with the Phoenicians and the Pharaohs and ends with the Treaty of Versailles.
The Middle Sea is John Julius Norwich’s best selling, comprehensive history of the Mediterranean; a work that begins with the Phoenicians and the Pharaohs and ends with the Treaty of Versailles, taking us through the Arab conquests, the Roman Empire, the Spanish Inquisition, Nelson and Napoleon, the Greek War of Independence, and the Italian Risorgimento…

The Mediterranean has seen three of the foremost civilisations of antiquity come and go on its shores, witnessed the growth of three major religions, and it links three of the world’s six continents. Serving at various times as a cradle and a grave, a bond and a barrier, a blessing and a battlefield, the Mediterranean is here masterly presented by John Julius Norwich.
