This chapter recounts the progress made in the fields of maritime and mediterranean history since the publication of Fernand Braudel’s landmark La Méditerranée. The first half provides an overview of the development of maritime history as an academic discipline from the 1950s onwards, noting the major publications, historians, and universities associated with the field. The second half concerns maritime history specifically relating to the Mediterranean, and briefly contextualises the maritime environments of France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Malta, and North Africa, respectively, as an introduction to the collection of essays that follow in the subsequent chapters.

Keywords:   Fernand Braudel, Annales School, Shipping Statistics, Liverpool Maritime Museum, International Commission of Maritime History
