Winner of the International Labor History Award

Long before the American Revolution and the Declaration of the Rights of Man, a motley crew of sailors, slaves, pirates, laborers, market women, and indentured servants had ideas about freedom and equality that would forever change history. The Many Headed-Hydra recounts their stories in a sweeping history of the role of the dispossessed in the making of the modern world.

When an unprecedented expansion of trade and colonization in the early seventeenth century launched the first global economy, a vast, diverse, and landless workforce was born. These workers crossed national, ethnic, and racial boundaries, as they circulated around the Atlantic world on trade ships and slave ships, from England to Virginia, from Africa to Barbados, and from the Americas back to Europe.

Marshaling an impressive range of original research from archives in the Americas and Europe, the authors show how ordinary working people led dozens of rebellions on both sides of the North Atlantic. The rulers of the day called the multiethnic rebels a hydra and brutally suppressed their risings, yet some of their ideas fueled the age of revolution. Others, hidden from history and recovered here, have much to teach us about our common humanity.

Verso recommends - Verso Books 21.11.2017 · “Scum of the maritime sort had their spell in the limelight with The Many-Headed Hydra.This compellting history of the ‘revolutionary Atlantic’ portrays pirates, sailors, dockers, sea-going whores and other dregs of the ocean and coast as briny rebels who resisted the global commercial order and even disrupted the slave trade for decades.”

H-Net Reviews A subsequent case study of Robert Wedderburn, born into bondage in Jamaica in 1762, only adds to Linebaugh and Rediker's notion that the Atlantic world was a simmering cauldron of pent-up resentments. As their story goes, the many-headed Hydra was more than an oft-repeated metaphor, it was the defining reality of the Atlantic world.
