Praise

This work is a significant milestone in the study of Christopher Columbus, his psyche, and the academic pursuit of history in general.—Clinton R. Long, Fordham University, The European Legacy

[A] hefty and impressive study executed with erudition, skill and considerable insight… Those who believed, following the Columbus quincentennial, that there was little left to say about a Genoese sailor’s extraordinary adventures overseas will now be convinced otherwise.

Neil Safier, American Scientist

The Tropics of Empire deserves to become a landmark in the study of the inaugural stirrings of European overseas expansion.

Gabriel Paquette, The Times Literary Supplement

Mr. [Wey] Gómez’s volume… offer[s] tremendous insight into the prevailing medieval understanding of the shape of the world Columbus encountered and absorbed.

Alfred W. Crosby, The New York Sun
