Culture of Piracy, 1580-1630, Hardback (August 2010)
Offers an analysis of the cultural meanings of 'piracy'. By examining the often marginal figure of the pirate (and also the sometimes hard-to-distinguish privateer), this title shows how flexibly these figures served to comment on English nationalism, international relations, and contemporary politics.
