Few things are more terrifying to a seagoing captain than the spectre of mutiny or more riveting to readers than a tale of mutinous deeds. In this fascinating book, Leonard Guttridge takes us on a tour of mutinies that have occurred over the past two hundred years. He examines such famous mutinies as the uprisings aboard the <em>Bounty</em> and the <em>Potemkin</em>, the racial disturbances on the <em>Constellation</em>, the rebellion at the <em>Nore</em>, and the hijacking of the <em>Storozhevoy</em>, along with some not-so-famous insurrections that fill his book with suspense and colourful characters to bring the dramatic events to life.<br><br> Throughout his investigation, Guttridge asks what these incidents, occurring in vastly different navies and different ages, have in common. His findings are both startling and illuminating. First published in 1986, this book is lauded as a unique study of law, discipline, and morale as they interact as sea. Alternately exciting our horror and arousing our sympathy, its meticulous attention to detail and historical accuracy assures its lasting appeal not only to the naval and legal communities but also to readers looking for entertaining nonfiction.
