Synopsis

"An extremely important and well written book" Times Literary Supplement "More than just a vivid illustration of the gains involved in thinking beyond the boundaries between nation-states. Here, in incendiary form, are essential elements for a people's history of our dynamic, transcultural present." Paul Gilroy, author of The Black Atlantic "The sections on piracy are perhaps the best parts in a generally splendid book. But even more seminal for historical research are the many vistas Linebaugh and Rediker open up in the history of blacks, women, the United Irishmen, the left in the American War of independence, and religious millenarianism. Strikingly, the authors write from the heart as well as the brain." Frank McLynn, author of Villa and Zapata "Scum of the maritime sort has their spell in the limelight with The Many-Headed Hydra. This compelling history of the 'revolutionary Atlantic' portrays pirates, sailors, dockers, sea-going whores and other dregs of the ocean and coast as briny rebels who resisted the global commercial order and even disrupted the slave trade for decades." Independent "The Many-Headed Hydra is a wonderful book.

Its passion and commitment encourages its readers to think associatively, to make progressive connections." Guardian "Peter Linebaugh and Markus Rediker, militantly libertarian academics, have written, in what the call 'this black book of capitalism', an account of trans-Atlantic social change since the seventeenth century, from the viewpoint of the underdog ...The authors' egalitarian bias may stimulate as much acclamation as Das Kapital." Irish Times

Peter Linebaugh, Assistant Professor of History at the University of Toledo, is author of The London Hanged, also published by Verso. Marcus Rediker, Associate Professor of History at the University of Pittsburgh, is author of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and contributing author of Who Built America?
