ON THE ISLAND IN Denmark where the oldest oak tree in Europe grows, a young boatbuilder nicknamed “the perfectionist” crafted a boat with his hands. In 1936, the boat was finished and her journey began. Seventy years later, in Port Townsend, Washington—just minutes after a near catastrophe was averted in the marina outside her office window—around-the-world sailor Kaci Cronkhite opened an email. A Danish spidsgatter named Pax was for sale in Victoria, British Columbia. After years of experience around boats, Kaci knew better than to buy a wooden boat. But—smitten by the buxom curves of Pax and inspired by a life in the wind—she did. The journey that brought the two together became a quest that connected families in three countries with history that had been lost. What Kaci didn’t know—what no one knew—was where and how far Pax had journeyed, what she survived those seven decades and what those who loved her would always remember.

Pax Romana

War, Peace and Conquest in the Roman World

A groundbreaking and comprehensive history of the Roman Peace from one of the leading historians of the ancient world Best-selling author Adrian Goldsworthy turns his attention to the Pax Romana, the famous peace and prosperity brought by the Roman Empire at its height in the first and second centuries AD. Yet the Romans were conquerors, imperialists who took by force a vast empire stretching from the Euphrates to the Atlantic coast. Ruthless, Romans won peace not through coexistence but through dominance; millions died and were enslaved during the creation of their empire. Pax Romana examines how the Romans came to control so much of the world and asks whether traditionally favorable images of the Roman peace are true. Goldsworthy vividly recounts the rebellions of the conquered, examining why they broke out, why most failed, and how they became exceedingly rare. He reveals that hostility was just one reaction to the arrival of Rome and that from the outset, conquered peoples collaborated, formed alliances, and joined invaders, causing resistance movements to fade away.

Lulled into a false sense of security, PAX's international sponsors have allowed their individual militaries to wane, opening the door for Petrain's ruthless grab for worldwide power. All that stands in his way is Jeffrey Speares, the American captain of PAX's newest and largest command ship, a man desperately trying to fit into this new geopolitical reality. With the help of loyal officers like Rachel Velasquez, one of PAX's leading fighter aces, he battles the powerful forces arrayed against him, and ultimately thwarts Petrain's plan of military conquest. Victory however, comes at a very high price.

Native Resistance and the Pax Colonial in New Spain

Ethnic rebellions continually disrupted the Pax Colonial, Spain's three-hundred-year rule over the Native peoples of Mexico. Although these uprisings varied considerably in cause, duration, consequences, and scale, they collectively served as a constant source of worry for the Spanish authorities. This meticulously researched volume provides both a valuable overview of Native uprisings in New Spain and a stimulating reevaluation of their significance. Running counter to the prevailing scholarly tendency to emphasize similarities among ethnic revolts, the seven contributors examine episodes of rebellion that are distinguished by their ethnic, geographical, and historical diversity, ranging culturally and geographically across colonial New Spain and spanning the last two centuries of Spanish rule. Unparalleled access to colonial archival sources also enables the writers to more fully consider indigenous perspectives on resistance and explore in greater detail than before the precipitating factors and effects of different forms of protest. A provocative concluding essay balances this line of inquiry by investigating how a shared cultural disposition toward violence in colonial New Spain contributed to the atmosphere of ethnic tension and rebellion. Susan Schroeder is a professor of history at Loyola University. She is the author of Chimalpahin and the Kingdom of Chalco and the coeditor of the forthcoming Indian Women in Early Mexico.
