NEW IMPRESSION

The naval mutiny of 1797 is the most astonishing recorded in ours, or perhaps any history; astonishing by its management rather than for its results, for other mutinies have been successful. Though a thoroughgoing and alarming mutiny, which shook the country from end to end since it occurred in the middle of a war, in one part at least it was ordered with rigid discipline, a respect for officers, and unswerving loyalty to the King. More- over, it was so rationally grounded that it not only achieved its immediate end, the betterment of the sailor's lot, but also began a new and lasting epoch in naval administration. First published in 1935 this is still recognised as the finest description of the events in that momentous year.

"The authors have the advantage over earlier historians of the Naval mutinies in that there are now available to students the Spencer papers, published by the Navy Records Society. They have also the advantage of a more human and sympathetic attitude of mind, whereby they recognise the story of the mutinies as a chapter of social history no less than of Naval history. As such, their well-told version of it, besides being scholarly and fully documented, is one of wide interest."
The Times Literary Supplement, 1935

"The value of The Floating Republic does not merely reside in its excellent treatment of its theme, the naval mutinies of 1797, but likewise in the light it sheds upon the history of the eighteenth century generally."
History, 1936
