Early modern European governments and their subjects had difficulty agreeing to laws governing behavior on the sea – an environment that featured watery borders, rampant piracy, the threat of free trade, and the large-scale transportation of human cargo. The essays in Governing the Sea in the Early Modern Era explore how the exploitation of the oceans changed the institution of slavery, long-distance trade, property crime, the environment, literature, and memory from medieval times to the nineteenth century.
