Pp. (8),vii-xv,(1),1-322,(10). 8vo, blue cloth. "Marcus Rediker uses a huge array of historical sources -- court records, diaries, travel accounts, and many others -- to reconstruct the social and cultural world of the Anglo-American seamen and pirates who sailed the seas in the first half of the eighteenth century. Rediker tours the sailor's North Atlantic, following seamen and their ships along the pulsing routes of trade into rowdy port towns. He re-creates life along the waterfront, where seafaring men from around the world crowded into sailor town, with its brothels, alehouses, and street brawls, and the city jail. His study explores social life at sea as well, especially the natural terror that inevitably shaped the existence of those who plied the forbidding oceans of the globe in small, brittle wooden ships." - from the dust jacket.

172 ROWE, Frederick W. History of Newfoundland and Labrador. 1st pr in dj
McGraw-Hill Ryerson, 1980, 1980 0070923973 / 9780070923973 
ROWE, Frederick W. A History of Newfoundland and Labrador . Toronto : McGraw-Hill Ryerson, (1980). First Printing. Pp (12),1-563,(1). 2 maps in the text. 8vo, tan cloth, copper lettering to spine.

"This is the first large-scale history of Newfoundland and Labrador to be published in almost ninety years. Frederick Rowe's carefully researched and skilfully written narrative deals with the history of his homeland from the earliest inhabitants, the Archaic Indians and Palaeo Eskimos, to the present day. He tells of the earliest European discoverers — Leif Ericson and, perhaps, the Irish monks of the Brendan voyages, and Cabot, Gilbert and other early visitors and colonisers. Here is the tragic story of the Beothuks, the Indian tribe that became extinct in the 1820s. The fishery on the famous Newfoundland banks led to permanent settlement and the conflicting claims of French and English. Newfoundland played a disproportionate role in the colonial history of the two European superpowers for nearly 300 years, and because of its geographical position it has figured in the outcome of every major war from Queen Anne's War to World War II.

Above all, this is a history of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. How they maintained for centuries a precarious existence based on fishing — an existence so precarious that starvation was still a possibility well into the twentieth century. How they resolved the antagonism of two hostile groups, the Catholic Irish and the Protestant English and Welsh, after years of hatred and violence. How they decided after a century of debate to join Canada. How Newfoundlanders relinquuished Dominion status lor fifteen years in favour of a unique experiment in government by commission. How since Confederation they have transformed the province, building highways, schools, hospitals and colleges, yet m the same time fostering a distinctive Newfoundland way of life." - from the dj flap

Index. 8vo, blue paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. "To many, the word conjures up images of swashbucklers in the eighteenth century. The very idea that pirates might still ply the seas today seems preposterous and far-fetched. But pirates most definitely still exist. And as TerrorOn the Seas shows, their violent activities on the other side of the glove can have wide-reaching effects— whether on our economy or the war on terro r. Daniel Sekulich takes readers on an eye-opening voyage into the world ofhigh seas piracy, a multinational, multibillion-dollar enterprise controll ed by organized crime syndicates and local warlords. Sekulich sails throughsome of the most dangerous waters on the planet to chronicle this threat t o national and international security. He meets with victims of attacks, those fighting the perils, and even pirates themselves. Terror on the Seas tells an explosive story of modern piracy, one that’s costing over $25 billion a year to battle and that poses the risks of environmental disaster, economic chaos, and holy war." - from the dj.
