'[...] this is a thoughtful and innovative study that exploits a broad range of sources to achieve Brown's stated aim: to relate "the story of a singular group of English merchants" (1). It is quite the story indeed.'
The Seventeenth Century
'[...] will be essential reading for those concerned with a range of fields including Irish history, of course, but just as significantly the War of the Three Kingdoms, early imperialism, economic history, and Britain's expanding role in global trade including slavery. In this meticulously researched work, Brown argues confidently for an even greater appreciation of the deeply linked relationship between these areas, a relationship driven by the Adventurers. [...] Brown's study is organized chronologically in a groundbreaking and compelling narrative
that contributes significantly to this period's developments and fundamentally to the later course of British colonial policy and practice.'
