  • ""From the author of 1491, the study of the pre-Columbian Americas, this new work is a history that explores the most momentous biological event since the death of the dinosaurs. More than 200 million years ago, geological forces split apart the continents. Isolated from each other, the two halves of the world developed totally different suites of plants and animals. Columbus's voyages brought them back together, and marked the beginning of an extraordinary exchange of flora and fauna between Eurasia and the Americas. As the author shows, this global ecological tumult, the "Columbian Exchange", underlies much of subsequent human history. Presenting the latest generation of research by scientists, he shows how the creation of this worldwide network of exchange fostered the rise of Europe, devastated imperial China, convulsed Africa, and for two centuries made Manila and Mexico City, where Asia, Europe, and the new frontier of the Americas dynamically interacted, the center of the world. In 1493, the author presents a scientific interpretation of our past."

  • "Se nel 1492 qualcuno avesse rivelato ai sovrani di Spagna Ferdinando e Isabella anche solo la metà delle conseguenze che avrebbero avuto i viaggi di Cristoforo Colombo da loro finanziati, molto probabilmente sarebbe stato incarcerato come un volgare truffatore. Nessuno potè fare nulla, invece, contro la forza dirompente della realtà. Già a partire dal 1493, infatti, gli equilibri e gli assetti del pianeta furono letteralmente rivoluzionati: due mondi che, dopo la frattura geologica di 200 milioni di anni prima, erano rimasti estranei e ignoti l'uno all'altro, si incontrarono e si mescolarono, in un processo di reciproca osmosi e contaminazione che, da allora, è diventato sempre più intenso. Alla luce della storia ambientale, inaugurata da Alfred Crosby con il concetto chiave di "Scambio colombiano", e delle più recenti ricerche antropologiche, archeologiche e storiche, Charles Mann esplora la genesi e l'impetuoso sviluppo di questo "mondo nuovo", unico e globale, nato da un autentico terremoto ecologico. Le navi europee trasportarono oltreoceano - insieme ai coloni e, poi, agli schiavi - migliaia di specie botaniche sconosciute, e ne importarono altrettante. Il che spiega la presenza dei pomodori in Italia, delle arance in Florida, del cioccolato in Svizzera e dei peperoncini in Thailandia. Al traffico di piante e animali s'intrecciò poi la circolazione involontaria e clandestina di altre "creature" che ebbero quasi sempre effetti devastanti sull'ambiente e sulla salute."
