From the Publisher
"As with most primary sources, the journal of William Speiden is full of unanswered questions, partial observations and tantalizing hints of larger issues. But readers, whether those interested the maritime world of the mid-nineteenth century or in the history of US-Japanese diplomatic history, will find many nuggets in the work."
--International Journal of Maritime History
"Those interested in the pre-Civil War Navy or American diplomatic relations with other countries should read this book."-The Journal of America's Military Past
