A wide-ranging new survey of the role of the sea in Britain's global presence in the 19th century. Mostly at peace, but sometimes at war, Britain grew as a maritime empire in the Victorian era. This collection looks at British sea-power as a strategic, moral and cultural force.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Taken together, the chapters collected here show how the Royal Navy secured the Pax Britannica of trade and diplomacy in the Victorian period, while British domination of global shipping lanes simultaneously created an international traffic in people, goods and ideas. As a result, this collection highlights the key role played by the maritime world in the Victorian British Empire.'

- John McAleer, University of Southampton, UK

'Miles Taylor's excellent edited collection on the Victorian maritime world is an encouraging indication of a new level of interest in this important period of the history of the oceans.' - Jonathan Hyslop, Journal of British Studies
