68 BANKS, Kenneth J. Chasing Empire Across the Sea : Communications and the State in the French Atlantic, 1713-1763. First Edition iin dustjacket
McGill-Queen's University Press, Montréal & Kingston, 2002, ISBN:0773524444 
BANKS, Kenneth J. Chasing Empire Across the Sea : Communications and the State in the French Atlantic, 1713-1763. Montréal & Kingston : McGill-Queen'sUniversity Press, (2002). First Edition. Pp (10),[xi]-xvi,(8),[3]-319,(3). Some maps in the text. 8vo, dark grey cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Dra wing on a vast array of official correspondence, merchant's letters, ship'slogs, and graphic material from archives and research libraries in Canada, France, and the United States, Kenneth Banks details how France, as the mo st powerful nation on the Continent and possessing a tradition of maritime interest in the Americas and West Africa dating back to the earliest years of the sixteenth century, seemed destined to take a leading role in exploiting and settling the Americas and establishing posts in West Africa. That it largely failed to do so can be explained in large part by problems emanating from information exchange in an early modern authoritarian state. Banksprovides a historical context for the role of communications in the develo pment of the imperial nation-state and offers an Atlantic World perspectiveon the growing body of literature revising the historical role of absoluti sm. Banks defines and applies the concept of communications in a far broader context than previous historical studies of communication, encompassing arange of human activity from sailing routes, to mapping, to presses, to bu ilding roads and bridges. He employs a comparative analysis of early modernFrench imperialism, integrating three types of overseas possessions usuall y considered separately - the settlement colony (New France), the tropical monoculture colony (the French Windward Islands), and the early Enlightenment planned colony (Louisiana) - offering a work of synthesis that unites the historiographies and insights from three formerly separate historical literatures. Banks challenges the very notion that a concrete 'empire' emergedby the first half of the eighteenth century; in fact, French colonies rema ined largely isolated arenas of action and development. Only with the contraction and concentration of overseas possessions after 1763 on the Plantation Complex did a more cohesive, if fleeting, French empire first emerge." -p.[1]. Preface; 1.

BARRATT, Glynn. Russia in Pacific Waters, 1715-1825 : A Survey of the Origins of Russia's Naval Presence in the North and South Pacific. Vancouver andLondon : University of British Columbia Press, (1981). First Edition. Pp ( 10),[xi]-xv,(3),[1]-300,(2) + 12 pages of illustrations. Map in text. Illustrated. 8vo, grey cloth, black lettering to spine. University of British Columbia Press Pacific Maritime Studies No.1. "This is the first study in Russian or Western literature of the rise and fall of Russian naval influence in the North Pacific Ocean from the time of Peter the Great to Tsar Nicholas I. The author deals with a neglected area: inherent tension between Russian naval and mercantile interests and the origins of international rivalry in the North Pacific at large. Barratt shows that Russia's motives for early expeditions to the Pacific were to promote science, exploration, and trade. But when imperialist powers vied for territory and resources in the area, military confrontation became a possibility. Rivalries within Russia, aidgovernment caution curbed the build-up of any effective counterforce and d ealt the final blow to Russia's naval ambtions. Her hopes for hegemony in the North Pacific and in Russian North America collapsed in 1825, marling the end of an enlerprising era for the Russian navy in Pacific waters. The navy learned from these early experiences that it was incapable of a 'great power' roie in the Pacific without an independent, self-sufficient, Pacific-based fleet." - from the dj. 1.
