Review

"Pope succeeds gloriously in bringing this critical, intermeshed Atlantic trade and industry to life. (Nicholas Canny, National University of Ireland, Galway) "

Review

[A] penetrating . . . conjectural mixture of history, geography, economics, anthropology, and international relations.--Choice|Impressively researched and methodologically eclectic. . . . An ambitious, complex, and thought-provoking study that should bring a lot more attention to early Newfoundland.--Itinerario|Pope offers a distinct model of colonization and a different perspective on success and failure in the Atlantic world. . . . A fascinating socioeconomic history. . . . A must-read for any student of colonial America, a model of what the new Atlantic history should be.--American Historical Review|One of the most instructive works of Atlantic history. . . . Deserve[s] a wide audience. . . . An achievement worthy of emulation.--New England Quarterly|[Fish into Wine] unfolds as a model of probing archival scholarship and alert, insightful interpretation.--Journal of Anthropological Research|[Fish into Wine: The Newfoundland Plantation in the Seventeenth Century] is a wonderful book, and it is a model for historians of small seventeenth-century colonies.--Journal of American History|This is socioeconomic history at its imaginative and scrupulous best. Peter Pope unsettles many hackneyed claims about Newfoundland's seventeenth-century past by combining exuberant mastery of local detail with large-scale insights into early modern transatlantic capitalism and its attendant cultural processes.--Catherine Desbarats, McGill University|Read a 450-page book on the growth of the Newfoundland fisheries? Yes! In this fascinating and impeccably researched tale of the struggle to establish permanent settlements in that remote area, Peter Pope brings to light how red wine, a commodity not usually associated with the fruits of the sea, helped cod become one of the stars of the Atlantic world.--Carole Shammas, University of Southern California|A nuanced reconstruction of the intersecting worlds of those who worked the Newfoundland fisheries and those who profited from their labor. Peter Pope succeeds gloriously in bringing this critical, intermeshed Atlantic trade and industry to life, deploying insights from archaeologists, anthropologists, and economists whenever the documentary sources are unwilling to divulge their secrets.--Nicholas Canny, National University of Ireland, Galway

Format: Paperback
Peter Pope writes an excellent account of the Newfoundland Plantation in the seventeenth century. Notably, he details the prominent position that the island held in the trans-Atlantic trade during the same period. It's a wonderful and thorough revisionist account that shifts some focus from the more traditional and well documented trading centres of North America. Overall, a stellar analysis of Early Modern Newfoundland!
