The forgotten century of English voyages to the Americas, 1518–1618 In the popular imagination, English colonization in the Americas began with the founding of Jamestown in Virginia in 1607. But the focus of English voyages to this side of the Atlantic for 100 years before that had been much further south, in defiance of Pope Alexander VI’s decree that South America would be divided between Spain and Portugal. Examining not only the oft-forgotten history of this period of English exploration between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, this history also looks at the voyages themselves, through the eyes of the sailors who faced that daunting journey. It is a story of adventure, hardship, and courage. Written by an historian with a practical knowledge of seamanship, this is an important contribution to an understanding of the early period of English attempts at colonization.

A historian and sailor describes how 16th-century voyages from England to the Americas were madeWhen a ship set out for the Americas in the 16th century, the crew faced a long voyage and a host of difficulties along the way. Ship-building, navigation, and provisioning were all crucial to the vessel actually arriving in the New World, which was by no means guaranteed. In order to reach her destination, both skill and luck played vital roles. By examining a host of original documents, including especially logs of voyages, historian and sailor James Seay Dean has been able to construct a detailed nautical history of this early period of English exploration of the Americas, when attention was still focused primarily on the Tropics. He looks at how the ships were built, how they were navigated in an age before even sextants, let alone GPS, and what life was like for the crews aboard them. This is an important book for anyone with an interest in the history of colonialism, as well as of ships and the sea.

This new and expanded edition of Dragon in the Tropics—the widely acclaimed account of how president Hugo Chávez (1999–2013) revamped Venezuela’s political economy—examines the electoral decline of Chavismo after Chavez’s death and the policies adopted by his successor, Nicolás Maduro, to cope with the economic chaos inherited from previous radical populist policies. Corrales and Penfold argue that Maduro has had to struggle with the inherent contradictions of a large and heterogeneous social coalition, a declining oil sector, the strength of entrenched military interests, and fewer resources to appease international allies, which have strenghtened the autocratic features of an already consolidated hybrid regime. In examining the new political realities of Venezuela, the authors offer lessons on the dynamics of succession in hybrid regimes. This book is a must-read for scholars and analysts of Latin America.
