THE PIRATE MENACE: Uncovering the Golden Age of Piracy
Explores the most notorious pirates in history (Blackbeard, 'Calico Jack' Rackam, Charles Vane, Bartholomew Roberts, etc) and how their rise and fall can be traced back to a single pirate haven, Nassau. Looks at how the growth of piracy led to a major surge in attacks in the Caribbean and along North America's Atlantic seaboard, threatening major ports and bringing trade to a standstill until the British government declared war on the pirates. Draws on extensive research and a wide range of first-hand accounts to recount the heyday of historical piracy. Contains 8-page plate section in color.
