Description

"While much of the telling of human history focuses on events that occurred on land, THE OCEAN READER takes the centrality of water as its starting point, bringing together material that has shaped humans' relationship to the water and treating the ocean as a dynamic site of history, culture, and politics. In its twelve parts, THE OCEAN READER gathers a variety of primary texts, including myth, scholarly writing, poetry, scientific research, song lyrics, memoir, journalism, blog posts, and more"-
