By Eric H. Cline

En el año 1177 antes de Cristo unos merodeadores de origen desconocido, los llamados "pueblos del mar", llegaron a Egipto, tras causar destrucción y muerte por donde pasaban. Esto sucedía en el inicio de una época de colapso en que desaparecieron las grandes civilizaciones de los angeles Edad del Bronce -egipcios, hititas, micénicos, troyanos, asirios...- en lo que Finkelnstein describe como "uno de los más misteriosos procesos de los angeles historia de l. a. humanidad". ¿Cuál fue l. a. causa de este cataclismo? Eric H. Cline, de los angeles Universidad George Washington, un arqueólogo que ha investigado este tema durante más de veinte años, responde que el fracaso se debió a une serie de causas conectadas entre sí: invasiones, revueltas, terremotos, y, sobre todo, los angeles ruptura de un sistema de relaciones en un mundo que había alcanzado un remarkable grado de globalización. Algo que nos recuerda los riesgos que amenazan hoy a nuestro propio mundo. Cline pone al alcance del lector medio los más recientes hallazgos de l. a. investigación en un relato realmente apasionante.
