Review

A "New York Times" Notable Book A "TIME" Magazine Best Book of the Year A "Washington Post "Notable Book "Fascinating. . . . Lively. . . . A convincing explanation of why our world is the way it is." --"The New York Times Book Review" "Even the wisest readers will find many surprises here. . . . Like "1491," Mann's sequel will change worldviews." --"San Francisco Chronicle" "Exemplary in its union of meaningful fact with good storytelling, "1493" ranges across continents and centuries to explain how the world we inhabit came to be." --"The Washington Post " "Engaging . . . Mann deftly illuminates contradictions on a human scale: the blind violence and terror at Jamestown, the cruel exploitation of labor in the silver mines of Bolivia, the awe felt by Europeans upon first seeing a rubber ball bounce." --"The New Yorker" "Revelatory." --Lev Grossman, "Time" Magazine "Compelling and eye-opening." --"Publishers Weekly" Top 100 Books of 2011 "A book to celebrate. . . A bracingly persuasive counternarrative to the prevailing mythology about the historical significance of the 'discovery' of America. . . "1493" is rich in detail, analytically expansive and impossible to summarize. . . [Mann's book] deserves a prominent place among that very rare class of books that can make a difference in how we see the world, although it is neither a polemic nor a work of advocacy. Thoughtful, learned and respectful of its subject matter, "1493" is a splendid achievement." --"The Oregonian" "Despite his scope, Mann remains grounded in fascinating details. . . . Such technical insights enhance a very human story, told in lively and accessible prose." --"Cleveland Plain-Dealer" "Mann's excitement never flags as he tells his breathtaking story. . . There is grandeur in this view of the past that looks afresh at the different parts of the world and the parts each played in shaping
