Reviews

"An original, heroically researched, and fluent study. The careful research and synthetic contexts render the narrative riveting."--Kathleen Wilson, Stony Brook University
"In this impressive book, Jessica Hanser opens a fresh window on the British overseas trading world. Written with verve and filled with arresting details, the book tells the true stories of three Scots, all named George Smith, and uses their experiences to cast new light on imperialism, cross-cultural trade, and global finance in the eighteenth century. This is global microhistory at its finest."--Tonio Andrade, author of The Gunpowder Age
