Let the Sea Make a Noise . . . : A History of the North Pacific from Magellan to MacArthur
Walter A. McDougall (au)
In this innovative work, McDougall covers 400 years of exciting voyages of discovery, pioneering feats, engineering marvels, political plots & business chicanery, racial clashes & brutal wars. It is a chronicle complete with little-known facts & turning points, but always focused on the remarkable people at the center of events. Some of these include the America-loving Japanese ambassador to Washington on the eve of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Russian builder of the Trans-Siberian Railway, & a Hawaiian queen during the first period of Western competition for the islands. A gripping & illuminating account of the rise & fall of the empires in the last, vast, unexplored corner of the habitable earth -- an area occupying 1/6 of the globe. Illustrations.
