Description
"In this wonderful book [Frank] Sherry not only offers compelling stories of piracy between 1692 and 1725, but also provides a beautifully written explanation for the rise and fall of the great age of pirates and a fascinating account of the democratic 'nation' of pirates. His narrative traces the roots of piracy to the quest for liberty and wealth in an age of oppression and debased poverty for the masses, and to the quasi-official sanction of church and state for privateering, the precursor to piracy. This is a popular history, short on historic subtlety, footnotes, etc., and long on romance, but that is a small price to pay for a book that is fun and action- and information-packed, and that helps us to understand pirates and the magic they stir in our imaginations."Library Journal
