Summary In this treatment of Britain's relationship with the surrounding oceans, the author examines the history of British people's maritime lives and, in turn, the formation of British cultural identities. A lens through which to view British life, the book spans more than 400 years, beginning in 1600 through to the present day. Tying together every aspect in the development of Great Britain, from state formation, industrialization and modernization, through to histories of transport, migration, slavery, warfare and crime, this book illustrates how the rich tapestry of Britain's narrative was decided not among the fields of the 'green and pleasant land', but out at sea
