Editorial Reviews

Review

“For those in search of lessons for today, Lambert's crisp and readable narrative makes clear that it took a combination of patient diplomacy, military force, and good luck to make the Atlantic and Mediterranean worlds safe for U.S. commerce. One suspects that all three factors are needed again now.” ―Walter Russell Mead, Foreign Affairs

“Does an excellent job of placing the Barbary Wars within the context of their time.” ―The Roanoke Times
