Hattendorf, John B.

SUMMARY

This is an encyclopedia of maritime history that, in scope and depth, rivals the expansiveness of the sea itself. It covers the entire history of seafaring, from ancient Egyptian shipbuilders to Viking sea-raiders, from Nelson and the Napoleonic Wars to the voyages of Zheng He, from the European conquerors of the New World to the nuclear submarines and supertankers of today. Placing maritime affairs in their larger historical context, the Encyclopedia shows how seafaring has bothreflected and influenced the major economic, cultural, military, and political developments in world history.In four volumes and more than 900 signed articles by an international group of historians and naval officers, the Encyclopedia offers a uniquely integrated approach. It emphasizes the connections between maritime history and many related fields, including naval history, shipbuilding, navigation and scientific instrumentation, maritime art and literature, commerce and economics, exploration and maritime geography, oceanography and hydrology, and international maritime law. In so doing, a wealthof information is available in a single reference work that can otherwise be found only with the help of an extensive library. The Encyclopedia of Maritime History is also available as an e-reference text from the Oxford Digital Reference Shelf.Hattendorf, John B. is the author of 'Oxford Encyclopedia of Maritime History ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780195130751 and ISBN 0195130758.
