this is a well written, nicely presented review of history of the Spice islands of E Indonesia

The writing is first class and is a good mixture of historic fact and current geography written in an approachable, but not dumbed down, style

This is an excellent book, My thanks to the author for providing so much information in such a clear interesting way. This book provides an overview of maritime history as well as dealing with the Silk Road and of course spices! So much information that is hard to come by in such a clear interesting format.

I read it before sailing to Banda. This book brought together elements of history which revolve around the spice trade. It also made my trip to the area so much more interesting. Well researched and written.
