Excellent book on the Pirates "Golden Era" overall with a lot of details as well. The author, Peter Earle, is described as a professor of Economic History, so expect dry. This book is also written with as much of a perspective on Naval efforts to exterminate the vermin of the sea as on the vile hoards themselves. The author does dig into Naval historical records to unearth what was going on to bring the marauders under control. The pirates are not treated as the sympathetic subjects one finds in another fine book of this subject, "Villains of All Nations" by Marcus Rediker. To that degree, this volume bring fine degree of balance to the subject.

Title: The Crimson Pirate (1952). Burt Lancaster plays a pirate with a taste for intrigue and acrobatics who involves himself in the goings on of a revolution in the Caribbean in the late 1700s. A light hearted adventure involving prison breaks, an oddball Scientist, sailing ships, naval fights, and tons of swordplay. Written by John Vogel

Newark initially discusses piracy in general and comments on pirate life. His book covers the most famous pirates such as Captain Kidd, Blackbeard, Sir Henry Morgan and "Buxom Buccaneers" as well as the Barbary Corsairs, and piracy in ancient and medieval times in his chapter called The Progress of Piracy. Privateer/pirates like John Paul Jones and Sir Francis Drake have chapter as does outright pirates Jean Laffite and Francois L'Olonois. The book is filled with b & w illustrations and about a dozen in color. Most of the illustrations apparently come from Mr. Newark's private collection.
