48 ANDREWS, Kenneth R. Trade, Plunder and Settlement : Maritime Enterprise and the Genesis of the British Empire. First Edition Hardcover in dustjacket.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1984, ISBN:0521257603 1984 0521257603 / 9780521257602 
ANDREWS, Kenneth R. Trade, Plunder and Settlement : Maritime Enterprise andthe Genesis of the British Empire 1480-1630. Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, (1984). First Printing. Pp. (6),v-ix,(1),1-394,(10). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

"Not since 1945 has a general account of the origins of the British Empire been published, as if the demise of the empire freed us from our imperial past and historians from any obligation to digest it. Of course, it has done nothing of the kind, but it does enable the historian today to approach that past in a more critical spirit and to attempt a deeper and more detached analysis than could have been expected a generation ago. The purpose of this work is therefore not merely to reco unt but to explain the course of English overseas expansion and the beginning of the overseas empire; a prolonged pregnancy, culminating in a difficult birth and sickly infancy.

The introductory essay discusses the forces and motives involved in the expansion movement, which is seen as being part of a wider European movement and derivative in many ways from it. The author considers the attitude and conduct of the Tudors and early Stuarts towards this fundamentally commercial movement and examines the nature and importance of sea power, the contribution of different social groups, and the relevance of religious and economic ideals as well as nationalistic sentiment.These various themes are taken up again in the narrative chapters which follow, dealing with the enterprises of exploration, trade, plunder and colonisation successively through from the early Bristol quest for 'Brasil' to the diverse ventures of the 1620s. The last chapter comments on the itneraction of trade, plunder and settlement and the wave-like chronological pattern of the English advance to oceanic empire." - from the dustjacket.

With many Newfoundland references, particularly in chapters 9 and 14.

Jean-Pierre Andrieux, OC (b. Montréal) St. John's businessman, author.

"Rumrunners is a history of the smuggling trade between the French Island colonies of St. Pierre and Miquelon and the United States, the Bahamas, and Newfoundland. The distribution of contraband alcohol has always been an element of the culture of Newfoundland and Labrador. However, with the advent of the American Prohibition era (1919–1933), the French Islands’ illegal practice took on worldwide proportions. This book details the rise and fall of the bootlegging industry in Atlantic waters, the efforts made by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to curb these criminal activities, and the evolution of laws from the Prohibition era to present day that have brought the trade to a virtual standstill." - from the back cover.
