In Atlantic Kingdom popular historian and mariner John A. Butler tells the story of how American shipbuilders, financiers, captains, and entrepreneurs challenged Cunard, the giant British company that dominated shipping on the North Atlantic in the nineteenth century. He concentrates on both sail and steam, but is particularly fascinated by the transition from sail to steam around the middle of the century. Along the way Butler manages to spin quite an interesting sea yarn, as they say.

Atlantic Kingdom pays tribute to the Americans who challenged Cunard, the shipping company that held a monopoly on North Atlantic trade routes in the nineteenth century. In an era when civilisation first grappled with large-scale technology and creative industries promised a new standard of living, competition for control over maritime trade was fierce. Cornelius Vanderbilt and P. T. Barnum were among those who battled like mythical gods for control of their domains. These titans of the Atlantic left behind them a wreckage of human lives, lost ships, and squandered fortunes in their failed bids for supremacy of the seas. This book is a clear, succinct, lively, and sure-handed evocation of American maritime enterprise at its zenith.
