A very well researched and presented text, the author draws on a range of narratives by men and women of different social and ethnic backgrounds from the early seventeenth centuary to the Victoria era and uses these extraordinary tales to trace the changing boundaries of Britain's pursuit of empire and its shifting attitudes toward Islam, slavery, race and American revolutionaries.
