This view of British privateering in the wars between 1702 and 1783 assesses the activity as an economic enterprise and considers its military significance. Attention is focused on the legal framework of commerce raiding, its business character and regional distribution, prizes and profitability, and the rivalry which often governed the privateers' relations with the Royal Navy. The work is based on Admiralty and other primary records.
