The true story that's "bloody good entertainment" ("New York
Times") about the colorful and legendary pirates of the 17th
If not for today's news stories about piracy on the high seas,
it'd be easy to think of pirating as a romantic way of life long
gone. But nothing is further from the truth. Pirates have existed
since the invention of commerce itself, and they reached the zenith
of their power during the 1600s, when the Mediterranean was the
crossroads of the world and pirates were the scourge of Europe.
Historian and author Adrian Tinniswood brings this exciting and
surprising chapter in history alive, revealing that the history of
piracy is also the history that has shaped our modern world.
