The Many-Headed Hydra In Stock Now

The Many-Headed Hydra. Sailors, slaves, commoners, and the Hidden history of the Revolutionary Atlantic.

Long before the American Revolution and the Declaration of the Rights of Man, a motley crew of sailors, slaves, pirates, labourers, market women and indentured servants had their own ideas about freedom and equality, ideas that would change history. Marshaling lost stories unearthed over a decade of original research, THE MANY-HEADED HYDRA recounts the role of these forgotten revolutionaries in the making of the modern world.
