1493: Uncovering the New World Columbus Created

Globalization. Readers who think of globalization as a modern process will learn much from Charles Mann’s book titled, 1493: Uncovering the New World Columbus Created. Mann’s lively writing engages readers as he describes the Columbian Exchange, and the ways in which the Americas, Europe and Asia transferred animals, minerals, fauna and flora to create what he calls the “Homogenocene Age.” We’ve been living in one world for hundreds of years, not decades. Readers who like history and biology will find much to enjoy in this book.

Rating: Four-star (Highly Recommended)
