  • Examines privateering and naval prizes in Atlantic Canada in the maritime War of 1812 - considered the final major international manifestation of the practice
  • Ultimately, its purpose is to examine privateering as an occupation in order to redeem its historically negative reputation
  • The volume is presented as six chapters, plus a conclusion appraising privateering, and seven appendices containing court details, prize listings, and relevant letters of agency
