Synopsis: Smuggling was rife in Britain between the seventeenth century and the mid-nineteenth century, and smugglers have come to be highly romanticized as cheeky rogues, cunningly evading heavy taxes imposed by an overbearing government. In reality, many smugglers were prepared to use excessive force as often as they used cunning, and the officers whose job it was to apprehend them were regularly intimidated into inaction. The whole social hierarchy was riddled with those willing or compelled to help smugglers, and many a fortune was built on this illicit trade. Trevor May explains who the smugglers were, what motivated them, where they operated, and how items ranging from barrels of brandy to boxes of tea would surreptitiously be moved inland under the noses of, and sometimes even in collusion with, the authorities.

About the Author: Trevor May is a professional historian, writer and educator, having tutored at both the University of Hertfordshire and the Open University. He has written over a dozen books on social and economic history, including The Victorian Domestic Servant, Great Exhibitions and The Victorian Schoolroom for Shire. He lives in Great Britain.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Smuggling was rife in Britain between the seventeenth and mid-nineteenth centuries, and since then smugglers have come often to be romanticised as cheeky rogues - as highwaymen of the coasts and Robin Hood figures. The reality could be very different. Cut-throat businessmen determined to make a profit, many smugglers were prepared to use excessive force as often as they used cunning, and the officers whose job it was to apprehend them were regularly brutally intimidated into inaction. Trevor May explains who the smugglers were, what motivated them, where they operated, and how items ranging from barrels of brandy to boxes of tea would surreptitiously be moved inland under the noses of, and sometimes even in collusion with, the authorities.
