Book Synopsis

This pamphlet contains a detailed overview of the history of New England whaling, both its rise and decline. Though whaling was a global industry, it was American whalemen, and New Englanders in particular, who would come to dominate the oceans. By the mid-19th century, during the golden age of whaling, American whalemen made up more than three-quarters of the world's fleet. The profits from this industry helped to fuel the country's expansion westward, making the United States a global powerhouse a century before it became a geo-political superpower.
