Pressestimmen

... lucid, well argued and historiographically deft ... it is an accomplished addition to the growing literature concerned with the urban, commercial and middling classes of later seventeenth- and eighteenth-century England. Urban History ... there is much to applaud in this book ... his arguments should receive a warm welcome from a wide variety of scholars. The London Journal ... along the way [the] chapters are marked by a great richness of contextual and historiographical investigation which adds substantially to current discussions of merchants, colonies, trade-networks, and alien communities. The London Journal Gauci's broad remit significantly advances our knowledge of this social and occupational group. The London Journal ... a fascinating and rewarding volume which fortunately rejects the convention of excessive length in favour of a slimmer and more readable literary elegance. The London Journal Basing his research on government and commercial archives as well as on a massive secondary literature, Gauci develops a meticulous and convincing analysis, one that specialists in any number of overseas trades would be wise to read, even if the particular trades in which they are interested are not specifically mentioned. The Northern Mariner This scholarly and effective study makes an important contribution to our understanding of the development of public politics in Britain. History
