Piracy has been around since man took to the sea. In this book, pirate expert Angus Konstam sails through the brutal history of piracy, from the pirates who plagued the Ancient Egyptians to the Vikings raids and on to the era of privateers. He then discusses the so-called "Golden Age of Piracy" and colorful characters such as Blackbeard and Captain Kidd, before examining the West's initial encounters with Eastern pirates off the Chinese coast and the phenomenon of the modern pirate. By separating the realities of piracy from the Hollywood-inspired fiction, and by tracing the development of piracy through the centuries, this book gives a realistic vision of what piracy actually involves.
