Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
I denna bok, skriven på engelska, berättas Gotlands och Östersjöområdets tidiga historia av historikern Tore Gannholm utifrån ett perspektiv skilt från den svenska historiens vinklingar.
Gotland with its location in the middle of the Baltic Sea was since the Bronze Age the center for trade and culture in this part of the world.
We still suffer badly from earlier generations Swedish - centered historical research. History was always written by the victors.
The "history" of the defeated and that of conquered territories is usually being ignored or even misinterpreted. This is true, not only for Gotland but for all those landscapes which were conquered in the 1600s and also, mutatis mutandis, for those parts of the old Sweden which were lost. Who now knows anything about the Middle Ages of Karelia or of Ingemanland or, for that matter, of Finland?
When Gotland was annexed by Sweden in 1679 it was the winners history that became ruling. Gotlandic history became irrelevant.
To understand the history of Gotland, one must fully realize that Gotland was an independent Merchant Farmers" Republic, and the hub of the Baltic Sea region, which from time immemorial had its relations mainly east and south.
The Gotlandic history is misleading and difficult to understand if it is bundled with the Swedish history, which so far has been done. They both have their separate history.
The historian Tore Gannholm with this book presents an understandable picture of the history of the Baltic Sea region and the Gotlandic history.
Tore Gannholm had gathered a lot of research material and published a new edition of the Gotlandic history in the Swedish language in 1994. In 1996 he published a book with additional material in the German language.
He continued to read everything he could find about Gotland and surrounding areas and scanned and saved it on his computer. It never struck him that there was such an enormous amount of unsorted material on the history of Gotland that he had on his computer until he got an external impulse to go through this material.
At the end of the 700" when the Islamic Caliphate discovered rich silver deposits in the east the Gotlanders went on the Russian rivers all the way to the Volga river and the Caspian Sea, and perhaps all the way to Bagdad.
The Gotlandic Merchants were in the Arabic sources on the Russian rivers called al-Rus" and Wareng.

Boken förmedlar en originell helhetssyn som ger Gotland en väsentlig roll i Nordens och Europas historia. Gotlands historia är mycket skild från Sveriges! Men även om helheten känns inspirerande, så är detaljerna och de konkreta argumenten oftast föga förtroendeingivande, om än baserade på stor kunskap. Exemplen är legio:
Gotlänningarna sägs ha haft en handelsplats i Volgakröken redan i senare delen av Bronsåldern. Argumentet är vissa gravdekorationer som liknar gotländska fynd från samm... Läs hela recensionen
