FRAMING THE OCEAN, 1700 TO THE PRESENT: ENVISAGING THE SEA AS SOCIAL SPACE. Ed. by Tricia Cusack. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2014. 302 pp. with 46 ills. (16 col.). 24 x 16 cm. LC 2013-37798 ISBN 9781409465683 In English.
Publisher's description: Before the eighteenth century, the ocean was regarded as a repulsive and chaotic deep. Despite reinvention as a zone of wonder and pleasure, it continued to be viewed in the West and elsewhere as uninhabited, empty space. This collection, spanning the eighteenth century to the present, recasts the ocean as social space, with particular reference to visual representations. This engaging and erudite volume will interest a range of scholars in humanities and social sciences, including art and cultural historians, cultural geographers, and historians of empire, travel, and tourism.
