"[...] a vivid picture of the working liv es of the thousands of Sailor Jacks and handful of female merchant seafarers, who called at the ports of Quebec, Halifax, and Saint John during the last decades of the "golden age" of sail." - from the rear cover of the paperback edition.. "The boisterous presence of thousands of merchant sailors drawn from the casual labour forces of Canada and other countries enlivened the seaports of Quebec, Saint John, and Halifax, during the shipping seasonsof the age of sail. Their patterns of employment, shipboard and seaside mi sbehaviour, and serious injuries and illnesses drew a variety of responses from port society. Jack in Port describes the social and economic environments of Canada's large nineteenth-century ocean ports where sailors sought work, jumped ship, created disturbances, and fought for a better work environment. Characterized by seasonality and shortage of supply, the sailor labour market had to contend with official regulation and unofficial controls -a struggle between reform and tradition - in a society undergoing fundamen tal economic transformation. Boarding-house-keepers often acted as private shipping agents, intimidating shipmasters and crimping sailors. Governmentsand reformers sought to control this lucrative system, but with limited su ccess, until the sailortowns of the crimps and the seafarers died with the passing of the sailing ship." - p.[i].
