Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"Maritime Archaeology and Social Relations is an edited version of the author's doctoral thesis ... . The work is extremely well researched, structured, and referenced ... . is both a very welcome book and an important one. ... The book joins a number of recent works on maritime archaeology that make an extremely important contribution to the broad 'historical archaeology' of the modern (i.e. capitalist, consumer-driven) world ... ." (Joe Flatman, Journal of Maritime Archaeology, Vol. 3, 2008)

"Springer Press has added yet another fine piece of scholarship to its growing series in underwater archaeology. Virginia Dellino-Musgrave's book contributes to the quality and calibre of this series as the eleventh monograph. ... it explores 18th-century British social relations within the context of maritime archaeology and history. ... this book is an excellent piece of scholarship. Dellino-Musgrave should be commended for her contributions to maritime archaeology. This work can certainly be classified as a 'must read by all' in current literature." (Jennifer McKinnon, The International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, Vol. 36 (2), 2007)
