Editorial Reviews

Review

"Detailed and illuminating insight into the world and ways of the press gang" Bookseller Buyers Guide


Mention —Book News, February 2009

'This is a colourful study ... Rogers [...] is careful to present a balanced picture, using statistics and anecdotal evidence to good effect.' Margarette Lincoln, Times Literary Supplement, March 2009


"[Rogers] should be commended for his efforts. This volume reads easily and makes a major contribution to the literature on civil-naval relations."
-Keith Mercer, International Journal of Maritime History, Vol. 21, 2009
