After fourteen months of field research in 1972-73 and an additional four months of field work with the Anutans in the Solomon Islands capital of Honiara in 1983, Richard Feinberg here provides a thorough study of Anutan seafaring and navigation. In doing so he gives rare insights into the larger picture of how Polynesians have adapted to the sea. This richly illustrated book explores the theory and technique used by Anutans in construction, use, and handling of their craft; the navigational skills still employed in interisland voyaging; and their culturally patterned attitudes toward the ocean and travel on the high seas. Further, the discussion is set within the context of social relations, values, and the Anutan's own symbolic definitions of the world in which they live.

This book is a study of the seafaring communities of the Arabian Gulf and Oman in the past 150 years. It analyses the significance of the dhow and how coastal communities interacted throughout their long tradition of seafaring. In addition to archival material, the work is based on extensive field research in which the voices of seamen were recorded in over 200 interviews. The book provides an integrated study of dhow activity in the area concerned and examines the consciousness of belonging to the wider culture of the Indian ocean as it is expressed in boat-building traditions, navigational techniques, crew organisation and port towns. People of the Dhow brings together the different measures of time past, the sea, its people and their material culture. The Arabian Gulf and Oman have traditionally shared a common destiny within the Western Indian Ocean. The seasonal monsoonal winds were fundamental to the physical and human unities of the seafaring communities, producing a way of life in harmony with the natural world, a world which was abruptly changed with the discovery of oil. What remains is memories of a seafaring past, a history of traditions and customs recorded here in the recollections of a dying generation and in the rich artistic heritage of the region.

Taste the salt spray. Watch the green water swirling down your leeward deck. Hear the cries of seabirds skimming wave tops thousands of miles from land. To dip into the pages of "The Hal Roth Seafaring Trilogy" is to throw open the doors and windows of your imagination on a vast, wild seascape, where any adventure is possible. Hal Roth is the Homer of our generation, a wandering storyteller who for years has sailed distant oceans in small boats. The tales he brings back are all the more incredible because they are true, and three of his all-time classics are gathered here, for the first time, between one set of covers. A journalist before he was a voyager, Roth combines a journalist's powers of observation and flinty realism with the poetic insights of a long-distance sailor and a graceful phrasing all his own. His utterly distinctive voice can be confused with no other nautical storyteller. He hides vast stores of seagoing knowledge in simple descriptions. Sailors are advised to read each story twice: first for the pleasure of a great adventure, then for a wealth of insights on overcoming adversity at sea. In "Two on a Big Ocean," we accompany Hal and his wife, Margaret, on their first major sea trek from San Francisco to Japan by way of the South Pacific islands, and back via the Aleutians, Alaska, and Canada. Hal's flowing narrative and vivid photographs reveal the many ways in which this dream passage became a voyage of discovery. The two sailors learned to cope with everything from equipping their 35-foot sloop "Whisper" for a voyage of nineteen months to the perils of scalpel-sharp coral reefs and opaque fog. Roth's gritty, authentic narrative underscores his singular ability to explore the quintessential aspects of the human condition as revealed in a small boat at sea. Not content with surviving and thriving through 19,000 unpredictable miles at sea, Hal and Margaret decided to test their mettle against the most daunting stretch of water any sailor can face. "Two Against Cape Horn" tells two stories: a delightful tale of the couple's pioneering cruise down the Chilean coast, followed by a harrowing account of turmoil, shipwreck, and recovery in savage, storm-tossed seas. In "The Longest Race," Hal delivers a taut, crisply written account of the greatest sea adventure ever undertaken: the first solo, nonstop race around the world in small sailboats. Of the nine men who undertook the challenge, only one would finish; all the others would drop out--or worse. Drawing from the sailors' firsthand accounts and his own understanding gained as a contestant in two later round-the-world solo races, Hal zeroes in on the essence of this competition: the ability to withstand a barrage of physical, mental, and emotional rigors over hundreds of days alone at sea. Here are three classic tales of crossing huge oceans in small boats, three irresistible invitations to escape a winter night or a fogbound anchorage for the wild heart of a distant sea. Hal Roth and his wife, Margaret, have crossed all of the world's oceans and sailed to a thousand foreign ports. Hal has also raced twice around the world single-handed in the BOC Challenges of 1986-87 and 1990-91. A magazine writer and photographer (over 400 articles), Hal has written eight books about his adventures and two how-to books, including "How to Sail Around the World," also available from International Marine. Big adventures on the high seas--from one of the greatest seafaring writers of our age Hal Roth's vivid, authentic tales of the sea have riveted readers around the world for forty years. Here, in one volume, are three of his classic sea stories, each one a white-knuckled, rail-down voyage into the unknown. A hard-working San Francisco husband and wife abandon their jobs, their security, and, some would say, their sanity to sail their 35-foot sloop to Japan and back--the long way! Over the next nineteen months, they discover exotic islands, fascinating people, and a whole new way of life. A few years later these intrepid voyagers decide to try their luck against Cape Horn, but they will need a lot more than luck to survive the vicious storms, violent seas, and perilous shores of the world's most dangerous stretch of water. Then nine courageous sailors accept a challenge to do what has never been done before: to race alone, in a small sailboat, around the world--nonstop. Only one will complete the race; seven will be forced to withdraw, and one will simply disappear. "Roth writes with grace, humor, and poetic insight about the vastness and beauty of the ocean."--"Library Journal" "By all means read all of Hal Roth you can find."--"Practical Sailor" "Roth's books about his life at sea, including "Two on a Big Ocean" and "Two Against Cape Horn," are universally listed among the most influential sailing books ever published."--"SpinSheet" "Roth can charm you out of your armchair."--"Kirkus"

A practical and comprehensive reference work, the Oxford Handbook provides the best single-volume source of original scholarship on all aspects of Coleridge's diverse writings. Thirty-seven chapters, bringing together the wisdome of experts from across the world, present an authoritative, in-depth, and up-to-date assessment of a major author of British Romanticism. The book is divided into sections on Biography, Prose Works, Poetic Works, Sources and Influences, and Reception. The Coleridge scholar today has ready access to a range of materials previously available only in library archives on both sides of the Atlantic. The Bollingen edition, of the Collected Works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, forty years in production was completed in 2002. The Coleridge Notebooks (1957-2002) were also produced during this same period, five volumes of text with an additional five companion volumes of notes. The Clarendon Press of Oxford published the letters in six volumes (1956-1971). To take full advantage of the convenient access and new insight provided by these volumes, the Oxford Handbook examines the entire range and complexity of Coleridge's career. It analyzes the many aspects of Coleridge's literary, critical, philosophical, and theological pursuits, and it furnishes both students and advanced scholars with the proper tools for assimilating and illuminating Coleridge's rich and varied accomplishments, as well as offering an authoritative guide to the most up-to-date thinking about his achievements.
