From the Vikings to the EU the Baltic has been a Nordic Mediterranean, a shared maritime zone with distinct patterns of trade, cultural exchange, and conflict. Covering a thousand years in a part of the globe where seas are more connective than land, Michael North s overview transforms the way we think about one of the world s great waterways.

"The book shines when the author writes about the region's cultural history, particularly in medieval times... North's book provides a valuable service in underlining the centrality of the Baltic' region in Europe's past. The way things are going, it may determine the continent's future, too." --Wall Street Journal

"In this book, North does for the Baltic Sea what Fernand Braudel did for another crucial body of water in his 1949 classic, The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean World in the Age of Philip II; he treats the sea and the lands surrounding it as an intersection of cultures, armies, economic trends, political formation, and trade routes and as a playing field for the ambitions of major powers." --Foreign Affairs
