"A totally absorbing book...imaginative and erudite, full of startling juxtapositions and flashes of real perception."—Jonathan D. Spence

Washington Post - Tom Engelhardt

Wills has pulled from the raging silence of history a modest but roiling mass of transnational humanity, and so reminded us that we've been a globalizing planet for more than 300 years. The world of 1688 was already an economic, political, cultural and sexual entrepot, and it's been stewing away ever since.
