A Ph.D on British blockade

In 2011 British naval historian Brian Arthur's book How Britain Won The War Of 1812: The Royal Navy's Blockades of the United States, 1812 -1815 was published. It is very expensive and unless your local library has a copy you are unlikely to have an opportunity to read it. Arthur based his book on this Ph.D titled The Royal Navy and Economic Warfare in North America, 1812 - 1815. The book and the Ph.D are not exactly the same but by reading his doctoral thesis you will still be familiar with much of Arthur's research and analysis. His Ph.D is in two pdf files listed in the links below.

Vol 1
Vol 2

Sounds like something the NHHC would want.

Thanks for this. I've never been rich or drunk enough to excuse buying this.

I have found a number of expensive academic works where the PhD on which they are based is freely available on line. However in one case the author has expressed on line that the PhD cannot be cited without his written permission. Not sure how much legal water this holds - can one stop a footnote that cites the title of a publicly available document and a page number?

It would depend on the laws in the country where the secondary paper is to be published, I think.
