New Perspectives on Maritime History and Nautical Archaeology


Series Description:

This series is devoted to providing lively and important books that cover the spectrum of maritime history and nautical archaeology broadly defined. It includes works that focus on the role of canals, rivers, lakes, and oceans in history; on the economic, military, and political use of those waters; and upon the people, communities, and industries that support maritime endeavors. Limited neither by geography or time, volumes in the series contribute to the overall understanding of maritime history and can be read with profit by both general readers and specialists.

This series is no longer accepting new titles.
