A Brief History of Mutiny, Paperback / softback Book

A Brief History of Mutiny Paperback / softback

Part of the Brief Histories series


The notorious uprising on the Bounty has been elevated to iconic status by Hollywood, yet Richard Woodman describes it here as a mere 'pup' among mutinies.

Captain Bligh was neither tyrant nor sadist -- whereas Pigot of the Hermione was both.

Woodman brings a seaman's perspective to thiscompelling history, which stretches from Magellan's handling of an uprising on his great voyage of discovery in 1519 to the 'sordid crimes' that mutinies had become four centuries later.
