Graeme Mack is an American history instructor at the University of Richmond and James Madison University. Dr. Mack’s research explores the evolution of American commercial maritime imperialism, a process pursued by American merchants and U.S. officials working to control sailor populations and protect American property overseas—far beyond the national borders of the United States. He recently completed his Ph.D. dissertation, “Seaborne Sovereignties: Pacific Trade and the Evolution of American Commercial Maritime Imperialism, 1787-1848,” in the History Department at the University of California, San Diego.
