Product Description

Review

"A first class work of original scholarship and a readable account of a dramatic chapter in nautical history." -Lloyd's List

.,."an excellently researched and written guide to eighteenth-century British privateering which sets new standards for academic achievement." -The American Neptune

"The excellence of this book lies in the research that has gone into it, its orderly stucture and its readability. Most of all it opens the way for even more detailed work to be undertaken at national, regional and local levels. We are indeed deeply indebted to Dave Starkey." -The Northern Mariner

Format: Hardcover
I first bought this book to help me with a particular part of my degree, the lecturer being Dr Starkey himself! Nonetheless, I have since re-read this book a couple of times and have found it to still be as interesting as it was while I was still at University. There aren't many books available generally on Maritime history and especially not on Privateering. I would recommend this book as the best starting-place for anyone interested in Privateering and Britain's maritime history generally, as it deals very well with the legal framework involved, and clears up the common misapprehension that piracy and privateering were the same thing.
