Reviews

'This collection of eight essays, preceded by an insightful, theoretical introduction, is a winner. Almost every part of the globe is treated, as is almost every historical period The authors are first-rate, their arguments are new, and the writing is precise This is an important contribution to the history of the state and will be of interest to a far wider audience than just maritime historians.' Rafe Blaufarb, Florida State University, USA
