   We all know that the oceans and seas of the world have always played significant roles in world history as they served as highways of trade and routes of migration, as well as the venues of opportunity for smugglers and pirates. However, historians have only begun to chart the experiences of maritime regions in detail and penetrate the historical processes at work there. The present publication, which belongs to Perspectives on the Global Past series, has actually made a major contribution to the efforts of these historians as it has brought together original scholarship on historical issues arising from all maritime regions throughout the history.
