    How is it that the small continent of Europe, with its rich multiplicity of cultures and traditions, has managed to exert so profound an influence on the rest of the world? Roberts's sweeping and entertaining history notes the paradoxical effect, for good and ill, on everything touched by those Western values that originated in Europe.

    Gillette says: "An example of why so many find History boring."

    great material. This fellow knows his stuff. But...the accent is hard to decipher and the recording doesn't help. I gave up.

    Captain Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin set sail aboard the Diane for the South China Sea, shepherding a diplomatic mission to prevent links between Bonaparte and the Malay princes. If their mission fails, English merchant shipping in the area will be threatened. At the barbaric court of Pulo Prabang, the stage is set for a duel of intelligence agents, pitting the savage cunning of Stephen Maturin against the French envoys, who are already entrenched in the Sultan's favor.

    I have now tried both, Patrick Tull and Simon Vance. I prefer Simon Vance. I find his reading more comprehensible and cohesive. A 5 star with Simon.
