Gordon, Stewart

There and back : twelve of the great routes of human history Stewart Gordon. - 1st ed. - New Delhi : Oxford University Press, ©2018 - xiv, 265p. : ill. ; 23 cm.

Includes bibliographical references and index.

Throughout human history, routes concentrated, funnelled, and mixed human experience. On them moved books, scrolls, and art, in addition to armies, ambassadorial entourages, slaves, brides, and pilgrims. The interaction of people on routes generated surprising innovations in ideas, religions, art, technology, and cuisine. Common themes appear repeatedly, such as slavery, piracy, government taxation and control, medicinal plants, military expeditions, the interaction of competing religions, processing of goods along the way, and networks of credit, trust, and information that often spanned continents. 0.
