From the Publisher"A professional piece of work and a contribution to the field."
"A meaningful contribution to labor and maritime history. . . . The future of maritime workers is hard to see. Their past, however, has never been so clear."
-Journal of World History
"Fink helps us think about the historical roots of these limitations as we strive, as citizens as well as historians, to shape a more humane world."
-Journal of American History
"[Fink] writes with grace, humor and wit, and deftly skewers the academic jargon so many maritime historians use. . . . A polished academic work that will feature prominently at seminar tables and the bookshelves of the learned public as well."
"An original, engaging, witty, and, yes, important study of seafarers and their struggle for improved working conditions....This is truly an important book, and a well-written one."
"Sweatshops at Sea is a masterful history that illuminates the issues of citizenship in a world of porous borders for a workforce that has always been both multinational and multiracial. Leon Fink's thoroughly researched, fascinating book provides readers with a fresh and invigorating perspective on globalization."—Nelson Lichtenstein, director, Center for the Study of Work, Labor, and Democracy, University of California, Santa Barbara
