John R. Gillis discusses The Human Shore: Seacoasts in History ($27.50). In his new book, historian John R. Gillis explores the deep history of seacoasts, the original home of humankind. Beginning with the moment that Africans came down to the shore, he follows the coastal migrations which ultimately populated the entire globe.  Gillis shows how we have shaped coasts, and how they have shaped us. John R. Gillis is the author of Islands of the Mind, A World of their Own Making: Myth, Ritual, and the Quest for Family Values, and Commemorations. He is Professor History Emeritus at Rutgers University and now divides his time between two coasts: Northern California and Maine.
