With a heavy emphasis on England, explores the broad issues of Europe's initial penetration of the rest of the world, the means they used, how and why they succeeded so well, and the continuing global consequences of European exploration, conquest, and colonization. Eight essays treat the ownership, manning, handling, and employment of the shipping industry. Eight more discuss aspects of empire and its aftermath, such as indigenous assistance to conquerors, economic thought, and the connection between the discovery of the Americas and the spread of intolerance, absolutism, and racism in Europe. Originally published between 1961 and 1993. Distributed in the US by Ashgate. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
