ADULTS Digital Book:
CIVILIZATIONS, Laurent Binet - Edited by Grasset:
Around 1000 AD, Erik The Red's daughter heads south. In 1492, Columbus does not discover America. In 1531, The Incas invade Europe. These events could not occur because the Indians were missing 3 things. But had they been given access to horses, iron, and antibodies the world's history would have been vastly different. Civilization is a novel about this hypothesis: Atahualpa arrives in Charles V's Europe to find Spanish Inquisition, the Lutheran reformation, emerging capitalism, monarchies exhausted by endless wars under the constant Turkish pressure, a sea infested by pirates and a continent ripped apart by religious quarrels. But, most of all, he finds hungry and broken populations, close to an uprising. Among these are Jews from Toledo, Moors from Grenada and German farmers: potential allies. From Cuzco to Aix-la-Chapelle, and until the battle of Lepanto, here is story of a reversed globalization, which could easily have been real.
