Baroque, he thinks, was originally a southern phenomenon though later transferred to southern Germany and Austria, and even France and was in its origin the arm and weapon of the Counter Reformation.

However, even with part two being split between volumes, there is a change in direction at the volume break. Part two deals with long term trends, and stuck to fairly abstruse subjects such as the economy in volume one. The first chapter in volume two is 'Empires'.

This is an examination of the two poles of the Mediterranean: Spain and the Ottomans. From there he looks at soci Braudel's massive scholarly treatment of the Mediterranean from to is in three parts split between two volumes. From there he looks at society, civilization and warfare before moving on to a more regular history of the period in part three. Being of the annales school of history, he is almost apologetic for including it, but argues that it has its place too. In many ways, the centerpiece of part 3 is the battle of Lepanto. While the description of the battle itself only takes a couple of pages, an entire chapter is devoted to event around the battle.
History has often recorded the battle as a great spectacle—which lead nowhere. Braudel argues that while it did not lead to further successes, it did bring the erosion of the Christian world to a halt, and break a defeatist sentiment that had taken root. Like the first half, it is a truly massive undertaking, and well deserving of its status of one of the landmarks of 20th century historiography. It is by far the more readable and interesting half for the non-academic historian, but at the same time revealed less of the sixteenth century from its archives.
May 28, James Culbertson rated it it was amazing Shelves: history. After reading the first volume, I had to learn how it turned out for the Turks. So much fun. Feb 10, Zach rated it it was amazing Shelves: history. Braudel's masterful look at the Mediterranean comes in three flavors: geography, systems, and, somewhat reluctantly, events.
All three are fascinating and explored at great length and detail. If I have one regret it's that Braudel is writing before much research was done on the Ottoman Empire and so this book is somewhat overly focused on the Spanish and Italian side of events, because that's where the research was.
But that's a minor quibble about a masterpiece. May 03, Ferda Nihat Koksoy rated it it was amazing Shelves: history. Sep 11, AskHistorians added it Shelves: european-history , general-history , mediterranean-history , naval-history , spanish-history.
Possibly the most important work of history of the 20th cen. I probably wouldn't argue this, but my point is the case can and has been made. It's a major major work -- and tremendously written. When we talk about Jared Diamond, we're talking about big, long, slow processes as determining the shape of history. Continue Wishlist. Continue Compare.
