Summary
This book offers innovative and challenging perspectives on the cultural histories of ports, ranging from eighteenth-century Africa to twentieth-century Australasia and Europe. The essays in this collection explore two key themes: the nature and character of "sailortown" culture and port-town life, and the representations of port towns that were forged both within and beyond urban-maritime communities
