Dr. F-A has a curious program in this book. He seeks to give us a picture, a snap-shot of a very fluid system, to wit, our understanding of the past, as we have drawn it from written, and archaeological evidence, but reveals in his Epilogue that he believes that history has no course. But the point of such a snap-shot approach is to draw parallels, especially as his chapter on the community of the Indian ocean. I found this information very valuable when relating it to the scale of European-Mediterranean commerce. He seems to have found patterns in his denial that such patterns can be found. We are also treated to a close study of the state of the mind, and of the technology of Christopher Columbus, and some information relating to the lapse in exploration by non-European societies in the generation preceding Columbus. The book, promising a unity of vision, seems disjoined, but has some interesting essays dealing with the effects of the Expulsion of the Jews from Spain, a quick look at exploration of North Eastern Africa in the fifteenth century, and a rare look at the Russian expansion of the period. A book for reading and then examining in the light of more detailed study in the areas covered. The prose is lively. I would prefer readers of this book to also read Charles Mann's two books "1491" and 1492". I reread this work in June 2021. ( )

Das Jahr 1492 ist wohl für viele mit dem Namen Kolumbus verknüpft - Felipe Fernandez-Armesto spannt den Bogen aber sehr viel größer, indem er die Zeit um den Wechsel aus dem 15. in das 16. Jahrhundert global betrachtet. Die Machtverhältnisse in Europa und in Nordafrika kommen zur Sprache, die Verbreitung von Islam und Christentum und die geographischen und maritimen Voraussetzungen für die erfolgreiche Fahrt von Kolumbus nach Amerika - und zurück.

Es wird aber auch hinterfragt, warum ausgerechnet die Europäer zu den großen Entdeckern wurden, nicht aber die Inder oder Chinesen.

Und Felipe Fernandez-Armesto zeigt immer wieder auf, dass nicht nur in Europa dieser Jahrhundertwechsel als Zeitenwende angesehen werden kann.

Teilweises etwas langatmig, in der Summe aber ein Geschichtsbuch, dass auch die außereuropäische Geschichte in den Blick nimmt. ( )

1492 was an easy and informative read in which the author looks at the civilizations of the world in the years just prior to the voyage made by Columbus. He thinks that that world was a different one from the world that we live in today and he attempts to explain how we got from there to here. The only section where I got bogged down a bit was the one that explained 15th century Italy and that was probably me and not the book. The sections on Africa and the formation of Russia were particularly good and told me a great deal that I never knew about the history of those areas. Also interesting was the way Christianity and Islam established themselves in some parts of the world but not others.

I liked the book well enough that I ordered the author's book Pathfinders from the library before even finishing this one.

Engaging high-speed overview of the world (well, the civilised bits, anyway) as it was in 1492, just as the Spanish reached the Americas and the Portuguese moved into the Indian Ocean. Very entertaining and informative. ( )

This is not my first book by this author and so I expected it to be a little dense and sometimes very academic. It was all of those things. But like the other book of his that I read, it was well constructed and loaded with information that I had not encountered before in my history reading (and I have read quite a lot). I am going to read Charles Mann's book "1493" soon so I think this will be a good prep for it. ( )

In 1491, a prophet appeared in Rome in rags, flourishing, as his greatest possession, a wooden cross.
