VILLAINS OF ALL NATIONS — ATLANTIC PIRATES IN THE GOLDEN AGE
|D O W N L O A D|
The content of the present volume by Marcus Rediker is intended to provide interested readers with a good insight to the so-called Golden Age of the piracy activities in the Atlantic area. You will know the truth and not what you are usually provided with in the pages of the most popular books and from the screens, where the piracy is actually romanticized.
The author tries to introduce readers to the Jolly Roger – the famous flag of the pirates of all times, as well as the famous figures of the past times. The story told by the author will show you how the old-time seafarers became pirates, what led them to change the occupation, what the reasons were and what the consequences were. In short, the book contains an excellent historical analysis of the above mentioned period, presenting a perfectly researched text.
The readers will benefit from the valuable information about the conditions that took place in the Atlantic of the eighteenth century and that eventually resulted in the splash of piracy activities there. The narrative is brilliant and it makes readers understand that the real piracy was, and still is, something different from what is told in the fiction books and shown in the movies.
