The Secret Alliances Between History's Most Notorious Buccaneers
and Colonial AmericaWas classical piracy an earlier version of
state-sponsored terrorism?Here's the story of how almost every
well-known buccaneer of the Golden Age of Piracy enjoyed active
sponsorship from England's governors in the American colonies-
setting a pattern of official disobedience to the Crown that would
ultimately contribute to the American push for independence.
Relying on rare primary sources discovered in government archives
in England, the Carolinas, Rhode Island, Jamaica, and elsewhere,
Burgess combines true tales of derring-do with groundbreaking
research in this fascinating history.
