In '1434', Gavin Menzies combines this long-overdue historical reexamination with the excitement of an investigative adventure. He brings the reader aboard the remarkable Chinese fleet as it sails from China to Cairo and Florence, and then back across the world. Erudite and brilliantly reasoned, '1434' will change the way we see ourselves, our history, and our world. Also, who in Renaissance Italy could read Mandarin?) Admiral Zheng He then traveled to America and died somewhere near Asheville, NC.

Gavin Menzies is the bestselling author of 1421: The Year China Discovered America; 1434: The Year a Magnificent . Menzies' books can be dry when he goes into all the discussions about naval navigation or scientific comparisons. That's the reason why I have to read it over a long time span.

Gavin Menzies is the bestselling author of 1421: The Year China Discovered America; 1434: The Year a Magnificent Chinese Fleet Sailed to Italy and Ignited the Renaissance; and The Lost Empire of Atlantis: History's Greatest Mystery Revealed. He served in the Royal Navy between 1953 and 1970. But I find them interesting because of the provocative theories he put forth.

Open source anthropology, with some speculation to drive the contention the Chinese armada visited Venice in 1434. It begins with the assertion that the Chinese surveyed the Pacific Coast of the Americas, and that is how Columbus and Vespucci had maps of the Atlantic before they began their voyages. Pacific vs Atlantic is where I stopped reading. Very interesting about Admiral He, but the book is light on solid evidence.

These books remind me greatly of James Churchwald's series on the Pacific continent called Mu. I loved those books when I was in my teens. I am much older now.

I read 1421 and bought 1434 awhile ago. I couldn't get past the first few chapters. It took a recent vacation with a new tablet to get me back into it. I haven't finished it but I'm writing a review after reading all the reviewers who completely shut down the theories Menzies proposed because they were not backed by written histories or historians who invested their entire life in the histories as they're written now.

Menzies' books can be dry when he goes into all the discussions about naval navigation or scientific comparisons. That's the reason why I have to read it over a long time span. But I find them interesting because of the provocative theories he put forth. They challeng the Euro-centric view of history. I think his critics missed the point entirely. He's not writing history (so please get your nose back in the joint). He's coming up theories based on the researches he and others did. A lot of his theories have not been "proven" but all new discoveries start from theories, right?

Being a history lover, especially a history buff of Chinese history, Zheng He's seven voyages are in Chinese history book. What is in dispute is how far they went. Unfortunately, they named countries/regions/places they visited not by today's names (:-)), but by names they probably invented...in Chinese. Could they have gone beyond eastern Africa and gone to land with no name and no inhabitant? Could they have crashed on some unexplored lands and never come back to tell the tale? Why is this an impossibility?

China was ahead of Europe before the 15th century in science and agriculture. China invented many things ahead of Europeans, e.g. gunpowder, printing, paper etc. Those are indisputable either. Why is it such an impossibility that Chinese inventions were transferred to Europe in the 15th century? It could be by the Chinese fleet as Menzies proposed or it could be other means. I found it fascinating that some of the designs by Da Vinci in his notebook were similar to Chinese invention. Another proof Menzies cited is DNA researches of Asian genes in Hvar, Croatia and Americas. Menzies said more DNA researches were in progress. I'm very curious to learn the results.

I often found the Euro-centric view of history text books taught in the U.S. and Europe and the ignorance of Asian, especially Chinese history in these history books dismal. I think some of the out-right rejection of ideas posted by Menzies reflects the deep-rooted skewed view of human history. Eventually, DNA researches probably will be the final and concrete proof of human migration, Chinese or European or others, on this planet. Before the DNA mapping of all continents is in, we can read Menzies's books and contemplate the possibility of what happened. If you don't want to read anything beyond what you learned in the history text books, then don't buy Menzies's books. It's that simple. No need to buy his books and then have an indigestion on how far he deviated from the history books. You're missing the point.

Hubby loves history so had to get this book when I noticed it at a friend's house on their bookshelf. He enjoyed it.

Well researched history putting together the author's experience in sea navigation with historical documents. It shows how China spread civilization to the world by sea voyages then became isolationist..

Fascinating, exciting re-imagining the spark that the author believes lit the flame of the Renaissance. Full of evidence pointing at massive influence of China pre-16th Century on the Old and New worlds. Note that most other researchers on the roots of the western hemisphere's history do not accept Menzies' assertions may put some boundaries in one's mind as to how much of this is "proven", conjectural, or incorrect. All the same, this is what science is about: science thrives on unanswered questions. Menzie poses new questions and stimulating possible answers.

Another good read. It does make one wonder about the Renaisance and 'the genius' of Leonardo???
The book does make the history of Europe and China more integrated that is taught in western Civ

This was a Christmas present to my husband. He says"I just finished reading 1431 and jumped right into 1434 and was expecting the same new and exciting things. However about two thirds of the way through 1434, the author started justifying what he wrote instead of new data.
Difficult after 1421 which I thought intriguing, but this is a drudge (I haven't finished it) and find it much more tenuous in its conclusions.
