Culture of Piracy, 1580-1630 by Claire Jowitt 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.

Travel Drama and Gender Politics by Claire Jowitt Travel Drama and Gender Politics, Hardback (January 2003)

This study explores the use of allegory in Renaissance travel drama and further develops our understanding of the allegorical nature of colonial discourse by focusing on the negotiations between gender and monarchy in "geographic" drama.
