520    Based on hitherto unused sources in English and Spanish in
       British and American archives, in this book naval 
       historian Barry Gough and legal authority Charles Borras 
       investigate a secret Anglo-American coercive war against 
       Spain, 1815-1835. Described as a war against piracy at the
       time, the authors explore how British and American 
       interests – diplomatic and military – 
       aligned to contain Spanish power to the critically 
       influential islands of Cuba and Puerto Rico, facilitating 
       the forging of an enduring but unproclaimed Anglo-American
       alliance which endures to this day. Due attention is given
       to United States Navy actions under Commodore David Porter,
       to this day a subject of controversy.  More significantly 
       though, through the juxtaposition of British, American and
       Spanish sources, this book uncovers the roots of piracy &
       #x2013; and suppression– that laid the foundation 
       for the tortured decline of the Spanish empire in the 
       Americas and the subsequent rise of British and American 
       empires, instrumental in stamping out Caribbean piracy for
