Beneath another sky : a global journey into history
Beneath another sky : a global journey into history
Davies, Norman, 1939-2017
Articles
In 2012, Norman Davies set off on a global circumnavigation. 'Native Lands' is his account of the places he visited and the history he found there, from Abu Dhabi to Singapore, the settlement of Tasmania to the short-lived Republic of Texas. As in 'Vanished Kingdoms', Davies's historical gaze penetrates behind the present to see how things became as they are, and how peoples came to tell themselves the stories which make up their identities.
