The 14 essays of this fascinating collection were presented in an earlier form at the eponymous February 2003 conference held at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. Many parts of the world's oceans are the setting for the papers, which concern pirates, seafarers, migration, race, shipbuilding, and trade, among other topics. The dates are wide-ranging too, from the Ottomans in the Indian Ocean in the 16th century, to the politics of West Indian longshoreman working at the Panama Canal in the early 20th. The contributors are historians who teach at universities mainly in the U.S. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
