Pirates by Book Resume:

A global account of pirates and their modus operandi from the middle ages to the present day In the twenty-first century piracy has regained a central place in Western culture, thanks to a surprising combination of Johnny Depp and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise as well as the dramatic rise of modern-day piracy around Somalia and the Horn of Africa. In this global history of the phenomenon, maritime terrorism and piracy expert Peter Lehr casts fresh light on pirates. Ranging from the Vikings and Wako pirates in the Middle Ages to modern day Somali pirates, Lehr delves deep into what motivates pirates and how they operate. He also illuminates the state’s role in the development of piracy throughout history: from privateers sanctioned by Queen Elizabeth to pirates operating off the coast of Africa taking the law into their own hands. After exploring the structural failures which create fertile ground for pirate activities, Lehr evaluates the success of counter-piracy efforts—and the reasons behind its failures.

The Pirates Laffite by William C. Davis Book Resume:

An “engrossing and exciting” account of legendary New Orleans privateers Pierre and Jean Laffite and their adventures along the Gulf Coast (Booklist, starred review). At large during the most colorful period in New Orleans’ history, from just after the Louisiana Purchase through the War of 1812, privateers Jean and Pierre Laffite made life hell for Spanish merchants on the Gulf. Pirates to the US Navy officers who chased them, heroes to the private citizens who shopped for contraband at their well-publicized auctions, the brothers became important members of a filibustering syndicate that included lawyers, bankers, merchants, and corrupt US officials. But this allegiance didn’t stop the Laffites from becoming paid Spanish spies, disappearing into the fog of history after selling out their own associates. William C. Davis uncovers the truth about two men who made their names synonymous with piracy and intrigue on the Gulf.

The Pirates by Sam Jones Book Resume:

Pirates are often glorified as nautical Robin Hoods, heroes of the seas - and some were great navigators, map makers, and discoverers. But they were also thieves and murderers. They were undoubtedly merciless, but their crimes took place in a cruel age when even children might be hanged for stealing pennies. Here, from historian Sam Jones, the likes of Francis Drake, Captain Morgan, Captain Kidd, Blackbeard, and even some female pirates, such as Mary Reed and Anne Bonny, spring to life.

St. Augustine Pirates and Privateers by Theodore Corbett Book Resume:

Entrenched on Florida's Atlantic Coast since the sixteenth century, the Spanish presidio of St. Augustine was a prime target for piracy. For the colonial governors of Great Britain, France and Spain, privateering--and its rogue form, piracy--was a type of warfare used to enhance the limited resources of their colonies. While the citizens of St. Augustine were victims of this guerrilla war, they also struck back at their enemies using privateers such as Francisco Menendez, whose attacks on British ships strengthened his reputation and sustained the city. Historian Theodore Corbett recounts this dark and turbulent history, from the first sacking of the city by Francis Drake, through the pirate raids of the 1680s to the height of St. Augustine's privateering in the eighteenth century.

British Pirates and Society, 1680-1730 by Margarette Lincoln Book Resume:

This book shows how pirates were portrayed in their own time, in trial reports, popular prints, novels, legal documents, sermons, ballads and newspaper accounts. It examines how attitudes towards them changed with Britain’s growing imperial power, exploring the interface between political ambition and personal greed, between civil liberties and the power of the state. It throws light on contemporary ideals of leadership and masculinity - some pirate voyages qualifying as feats of seamanship and endurance. Unusually, it also gives insights into the domestic life of pirates and investigates the experiences of women whose husbands turned pirate or were captured for piracy. Pirate voyages contributed to British understanding of trans-oceanic navigation, patterns of trade and different peoples in remote parts of the world. This knowledge advanced imperial expansion and British control of trade routes, which helps to explain why contemporary attitudes towards piracy were often ambivalent. This is an engaging study of vested interests and conflicting ideologies. It offers comparisons with our experience of piracy today and shows how the historic representation of pirate behaviour can illuminate other modern preoccupations, including gang culture.

The Pirates by Matthew West Book Resume:

The thirty-year Golden Age of Piracy stretched into the early eighteenth century. During that time, as this vividly written book by historian Matthew West shows, poverty and oppression prompted many men - and even a few women - to sea in search of treasure, adventure, and sometimes, revenge. The treasure taken in a single trip could net a captain many times the profit an average sailor might expect to gain over a lifetime. The Pirates provides an exciting glimpse into the characters, crimes, and legends created by the buccaneers.

    Pirates in Black Tie by Deborah Young Book Resume:

    A dazzling tropical sun, the relaxing sound of waves rolling over a placid sea, and breathtaking, unspoiled white sand beaches: we’re in the heart of the Caribbean. Aboard the Joli Mai, a luxurious catamaran for rent, two married couples are having a dream vacation in paradise on Earth. The Quintanas and the Whittlemans are just getting ready for breakfast when a speedboat appears out of nowhere and they are brutally murdered by pirates. Mike and Patty, the Whittlemans’ children, miraculously survive the attack and are the only witnesses of a slaughter that seems to be nothing more than the cruel outcome of a robbery. But when Simon Dart, Janice Whittleman’s former colleague and an ex-DIA agent, talks with Mike, he soon realizes that there’s much more to the robbery than meets the eye. As Simon finds himself involved in a mystery that he will have to untangle, the crystalline waters of the Caribbean transform into tall and monstrous waves, highly treacherous to navigate. Alternating the lights and shadows of life in the idyllic tropical islands, Deborah Young’s first novel is a masterfully written, sun-drenched noir and a must for fans of the genre. Deborah Young, the international film editor of The Hollywood Reporter, is a writer and film critic living in Rome. Born in Missouri, she graduated from Wellesley College and New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts before moving to Italy, where she has worked as a journalist, critic, screenwriter, and translator. She has been Variety’s Rome bureau chief and the director of the Taormina Film Festival.

    The Republic of Pirates by Colin Woodard Book Resume:

    The untold story of a heroic band of Caribbean pirates whose defiance of imperial rule inspired revolt in colonial outposts across the world In the early eighteenth century, the Pirate Republic was home to some of the great pirate captains, including Blackbeard, "Black Sam" Bellamy, and Charles Vane. Along with their fellow pirates—former sailors, indentured servants, and runaway slaves—this "Flying Gang" established a crude but distinctive democracy in the Bahamas, carving out their own zone of freedom in which servants were free, blacks could be equal citizens, and leaders were chosen or deposed by a vote. They cut off trade routes, sacked slave ships, and severed Europe from its New World empires, and for a brief, glorious period the Republic was a success.

    Pirates, Merchants, Settlers, and Slaves by Kevin P. McDonald Book Resume:

    In the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, more than a thousand pirates poured from the Atlantic into the Indian Ocean. There, according to Kevin P. McDonald, they helped launch an informal trade network that spanned the Atlantic and Indian Ocean worlds, connecting the North American colonies with the rich markets of the East Indies. Rather than conducting their commerce through chartered companies based in London or Lisbon, colonial merchants in New York entered into an alliance with Euro-American pirates based in Madagascar. Pirates, Merchants, Settlers, and Slaves explores the resulting global trade network located on the peripheries of world empires and shows the illicit ways American colonists met the consumer demand for slaves and East India goods. The book reveals that pirates played a significant yet misunderstood role in this period and that seafaring slaves were both commodities and essential components in the Indo-Atlantic maritime networks. Enlivened by stories of Indo-Atlantic sailors and cargoes that included textiles, spices, jewels and precious metals, chinaware, alcohol, and drugs, this book links previously isolated themes of piracy, colonialism, slavery, transoceanic networks, and cross-cultural interactions and extends the boundaries of traditional Atlantic, national, world, and colonial histories.
