‘The Phillipses The Worlds of Christopher Columbus is a clear and succinct account of the causes, courses and consequences of the four Columbus voyages. Written by two economic historians, it is especially good on trade, in the Old World and the New. The approach is judicious, cautiously balancing traditionalist stress on Columbus’s achievements and revisionist emphasis on the sufferings which resulted - without resorting to tedious one-hand and other-hand parallels. It is a thoroughly professional job: perhaps it is, as Cambridge University Press claims, ‘the Columbus book’ of 1992.’ Christopher Haigh,Times Educational Supplement.‘ ... it is the achievement of this book that it places with balance, discernment, and fullness Columbus’ place within the trends swirling through the Europe of his day and the real nature of the collision his voyage instigated between two worlds. In this regard ... the book is geared for individuals desiring a more exhaustive treatment of the issues.’ Booklist
