The World That Trade Created Society, Culture, and the World Economy, 1400 to the Present, Fourth Edition

Review :

This might be the best required reading I've ever went through in high school, I don't recall if it was economics or history class, but I had to write a paper on it and I was absolutely blown away at the intricate web of connections that trade has through the different continents around the Atlantic.

There probably isn't a more extreme example of cultural shifts on trade than the Japanese ending their self
imposed exile of the world thanks to a rather intimidating navy knocking at their door, but the economic and cultural timeline this book provides gives one a glimpse into trade and produce that makes oneself yearn to go pop in civilization for a few hundred hours in the PC.
