Sailing into Modernity: Comparative Perspectives on the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century European Economic Transition


The project team have edited a collection of essays, Law, Labour, and Empire, which brings together comparative and international analyses of seafarers during the period 1500-1800: for more details, see the Centre's publications page. Here you can download the bibliography of secondary sources from that volume, listing scholarship on early modern seafarers - and many other topics - in a number of languages.
