房龙地理·太平洋的故事作者简介

编辑
作者:(美国)亨德里克·威廉·房龙 (Hendrik Willem Van Loon)
房龙(Hendrik Willem Van Loon,1882-1944),荷裔美国著名通俗历史学家。善于用轻巧俏皮的文字,撰写历史、文化、文明、科学等方面的通俗历史著作。向人类的无知与偏执挑战,将知识与真理普及为人所共知的常识。一生中出版了三十余种书籍,单枪匹马地将人类各方面的历史几乎全都复述一遍。其中《宽容》、《人类的故事》、《房龙地理》(即《人类的家园》)等畅销著作,影响了几代人。 郁达夫曾说,房龙的笔有一种魔力,干燥无味的科学常识经他那么一写,无论大人小孩,读他书的人都觉得娓娓忘倦了。

房龙地理·太平洋的故事内容简介

编辑
《房龙地理·太平洋的故事(英文版原版)》中,作者以新的视野讲述了发现太平洋的历史过程:从巴拿马地峡到静静的达连山,从波利尼西亚人对太平洋最早发现到麦哲伦等人的航海之旅,从新大陆探险的狂热到由此引发的造成数万欧洲人破产的大骗局,从复活节岛上的奇迹到《鲁滨逊漂流记》主人公原型的真实生活……。太平洋是世界上最浩瀚、辽阔的大洋,它给予人类的不仅是湛蓝的、深不可测的景观或者具有摧毁性威力的风暴,而且还有无数宝藏和资源。房龙以其深厚的学养和语言功底,将几百年来航海家们的伟大功绩娓娓道来,告诉我们太平洋的一个又一个奥秘是怎样被发现的,不但充满了绮丽的异国情调,而且蕴涵着丰富的人生哲理。
