This volume is a reprint of Ralph Davis' seminal 1962 book, The Rise of the English Shipping Industry in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries. The aim was to examine the economic reasons for the growth of British shipping before the arrival of modern technology, with a particular attention on overseas trade. The study can roughly be divided into two halves. The first is an in-depth exploration the roles within the shipping industry, from shipbuilders and shipowners to seamen and masters, from an economic perspective. The second is a chapter-by-chapter review of British overseas trade with Northern Europe, Southern Europe, the Mediterranean, East India, and America and the West Indies. The final two chapters diverge from the main sections, and focus on the interplay between government, war, and shipping. Davis attaches no extra significance to any particular nation or role, and offers an even-handed approach to maritime history still considered rare in the present day. Costs, profits, voyage estimates, ship-prices, and earnings all come under close and equal scrutiny as Davis seeks to understand the trades and developments in shipping during the period. To conclude, he places the study into a broader historical context and discovers that shipping played a measured but crucial role in the development of industrialisation and English economic development. This edition includes an introduction by the series editor; Davis' introduction and preface; seventeen analytical chapters; a concluding chapter; two appendices concerning shipping statistics and sources; and a comprehensive index.

This book builds on Professor Arasaratnam's many years of research in the British, Dutch and Southern Indian archives. Some of the results of this he has already published in a long series of articles and in a study of the commerce of the Coromandel coast in the period 1650-1740. The present work takes this forward to the period when the English had emerged successful from the conflict with the French, and were consolidating their control of the region, notwithstanding challenges from the newly risen kingdom of Mysore.

Piracy and the English Government, 1616-1642, explores two main themes. First, it explodes the myth that England was 'a nation of pirates'. In fact, the English people were far more often victims of piracy. The costs to the economy and society resulting from piracy are critically examined for the first time here. This investigation reveals that not only were hundreds of English ships lost to pirates in the period studied, but an astonishing number (approximately 8,000 men, women and children) were carried away to Barbary by pirates and sold into slavery. Losses from piracy posed significant political problems for the early Stuart government, and the response of the government to the problem is the second theme of this study. At times naval force was employed; on other occasions a policy of appeasement was favoured. The reasons behind the adoption of various policies are explored and related to broader political concerns and influences. In this sense, the book is an extended essay on policy-making in Early Stuart England.
