"The Maritime World of Early Modern Britain demonstrates how different the questions and methodological approaches of early modern maritime history can be."
- Patrick Schmidt, Historisches Institut, Universität Rostock
"[The Maritime World of Early Modern Britain] is the inaugural volume of the new Maritime Humanities 1400-1800: Cultures of the Sea series and it is an excellent first statement in that series. The very high quality of the papers is exceeded only by their diversity of topics and approaches […] This book is a good statement on the future of maritime history in the early modern period. It should be widely made available and all students of maritime history be encouraged to read it and be inspired."
- Dr. Sam McLean, Global Maritime History
"With contributions that consider familiar sources from new angles and include unconventional actors in the narrative, The Maritime World of Early Modern Britain 'reveals a picture of connection, exchange, and interdependence' (35), identifying stimulating themes and methods for maritime historians of Britain and beyond."
