Editorial Reviews

International Journal of Maritime History
“Taken together the papers in this volume give a good impression of the wide range of issues relating to maritime recreation that are currently engaging scholars. Different as they may be, the papers are all based on thorough historic research in a variety of different sources. The result is a combination of well-argued corrections to traditional views and new knowledge in hitherto unknown areas. I can strongly recommend this book both as a good example of historic craftmanship and as a most inspiring study of maritime leisure activities.” –International Journal of Maritime History, 1999

Progress in Tourism and Hospitality Research
“[This book] is nicely presented with clear crisp text, good diagrams and relevant photographs. It is also well priced and provides much food for thought and new ideas . . . For anyone interested in the history of tourism and recreation this book deserves to be read.” –Progress in Tourism and Hospitality Research, Vol. 4, No. 2, 1998

The Northern Mariner
“There is little with which to quibble in this fine collection.” –The Northern Mariner, Vol. VIII No. 2, April 1998

Great Circle
This is a delightful and stimulating volume of essays . . . a most worthwhile collection. What adds to the pleasure of reading it is the quality of the maps and the illustrations.
