Corsairs and navies, 1660-1760

£35.99

Product description

Early modern states had gradually applied rules to privateering- J.S. Bromley prefers the more European and flexible 'corsairs'- which in a large degree differentiated from its timeless origins in piracy. Louis XIV's guerre de course remains the classic exposition of privateering as a national strategy, in Vauban's eyes a shortcut to victory. Professor Bromley prefers a socio-economic approach- looking at such recruitment and marketing. ..

John Bromley is a scholar with international reputation for his work in maritime and naval history. But so many of his contributions have been originally published in foreign periodicals, festschriften, conference proceedings and other less accessible places as to make this collection virtually a new book for the English public. Indeed several of the essays have previously appeared in print.
