Description: In this release, the author tells the history of the world in case studies, each of which begins with the technical evolution of the ship before transitioning to historical connections. The author explores the age-old, immensely dangerous, persistently romantic and ongoing process of moving people and goods across the seven seas.
The focus on material culture explains some of the absence of social history, such as the adventures of Jack Tar ashore, or the politics of piracy. Here Gordon writes for a more general public, as well as historians with a penchant for global studies. In a nutshell, Sixteen Shipwrecks provides an enjoyable and easily accessible short introduction to the roles of maritime history and nautical archaeology in a global history context. Well-chosen illustrations assist readers new to the maritime field, and endnotes cite a range of major sources and authorities for more information.
