Appendix; Abbreviations; Bibliography; Notes; Index. "Meticulously researched and vividly readable, [this book is] the first definitive account of this 'infamous idea'. The book explodes the myths surrounding Columbus and the battles between science and religion, explores the wilder shores of flat-earth belief and establishes without doubt that the world is most emphatically not flat. The result is a remarkable study of strange obsessions and sometimes stranger individuals. Thoroughly enjoyable and illuminating, it is social and intellectual history at its best."
