Book Synopsis
Ancient Crete is a puzzle. The islanders of Bronze Age Crete were so far ahead of the other societies of their time that their beautiful artistic products were eagerly snapped up by the Egyptians and the people along Canaan's coast. They created the first merchant marine in history. Most astonishing of all their achievements, these people never knew war. Their thriving cities were not fortified. There are no scenes of warfare in their art and no record of the "deeds of mighty kings". Over their entire 5,000-year history they never knew war. How did they do it?
This book posits that the answers are revealed in the history of their culture.
