More About The Barbary Wars by Frank Lambert
 
 
 
Overview
The history of America's conflict with the piratical states of the Mediterranean runs through the presidencies of Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison; the adoption of the Constitution; the Quasi-War with France and the War of 1812; the construction of a full-time professional navy; and, most important, the nation's haltering steps toward commercial independence. Frank Lambert's genius is to see in the Barbary Wars the ideal means of capturing the new nation's shaky emergence in the complex context of the Atlantic world.
Depicting a time when Britain ruled the seas and France most of Europe, "The ""Barbary"" Wars "proves America's earliest conflict with the Arabic world was always a struggle for economic advantage rather than any clash of cultures or religions.
