Abstract
 
Description
This is a memorable and fascinating history of piracy on the high seas, from antiquity to 1800's and beyond. Piracy flourished in the early 18th century, and produced many of the famous - and infamous - characters that have gripped imaginations worldwide for hundreds of years, including Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, and Bartholomew Roberts. However, piracy on the high seas existed long before these names struck terror into the hearts of sailors and merchants - Julius Caesar was captured by pirates - and it remains a major problem in the modern world. "The History of Pirates" presents a thoroughly researched, authoritative, and fascinating account of piracy on the high seas from antiquity to the New World and beyond. - from Amzon
