December 14, 2015


This is some of the earliest work to determine the mechanism(s) controlling the CO2 exchange rate through the ocean's surface. This study was carried out long before anybody worried about global warming. The main use of this research at that time was to explain how CO2 got into and out of the lungs. Now it pointedly pertains to the global problem of CO2 build-up in the atmosphere. How much and how fast can the ocean absorb it?

This is NOT a novel.

Reviewers called THE MOGHUL “the finest book on India since Kipling” , another “SHOGUN or THE FAR PAVILLIONS,” “rousing, romantic adventure” “high action” “a vividly told tale” “captivates the reader” with “mysteries of the harem to battles of massed elephants.” Optioned twice for a Miniseries. (To date, five pirate English-language paper editions have appeared worldwide.)
Publisher's Weekly said, "This action-crammed, historically factual novel . . . is a rousing read about the bad old marauding days, ably researched by Hoover." In the epic tradition of James Clavell and James A. Mitchner: the Europeans who created human slavery in the Americas, the origins of the buccaneers, the first American revolution.
