Mathematical Geography-1


I have uploaded three chapters from my second manuscript. The unit from which they are taken is called THE MIRACULOUS REVIVAL OR THE PAINFUL RECOVERY. The topic is the revival of geography in the Middle Ages and the basics of mathematical geography. These three articles can be viewed at

There is one more article which I intend to upload soon. Another unit about medieval navigation is ready but will have to wait for fine tuning.

Michael Baizerman searches for origins of oldest cities on earth

‘Dawn and Sunset’ traces earliest complex societies in Ancient Near East

BAT YAM, Israel – One of the most intriguing puzzles of ancient history is when and where the earliest cities on earth showed up. This question has inspired Michael Baizerman to search for the origin of the oldest cities on earth and thus prompted him to write “Dawn and Sunset.” (published by AuthorHouse UK)


This book traces the emergence of one of the earliest complex societies in the Ancient Near East. It follows the development of pristine city communities throughout the IV and the III millennia BCE. It describes their consolidation into early empires and their inevitable decline.


“It will appeal to history fans who will find new interpretations of facts and events,” says Baizerman. “It will appeal to history students as well who will be attracted by dramatic style and accurate descriptions”.


Written by a layman and addressed to general readers, “Dawn and Sunset” will show that mankind is connected to its roots from the sights and sounds of the Ancient Near East to the image of the rich culture that was one of the predecessors of man’s own civilization.
