Another View of History

For yet another view of history, check out Europe Between the Oceans (reviewed here). The author, Sir Barry Cunliffe, takes the view that history is largely determined by geography, a claim that hearkens back at least to Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs and Steel. So maybe history isn't about great people after all. It's about masses ... land masses!
