From the Publisher
"Each of the twelve authors deftly plumb the depths of documentary sources, literary analyses, personal observations, biographical and historical accounts to improve vastly on the seemingly two-dimensional nature of the pirate."
-The Great Circle: Journal of the Australian Association for Maritime History,
"Long overdue! Stunning in breadth and depth, Bandits at Sea is the pirate historian's who's-who rendesvous. Pennell has pulled together for the first time the best and most recent scholarly work on piracy in the context of the wider world. A fresh look at an old topic. Highly recommended!"
-Kris Lane,College of William & Mary
"Bandits at Sea provides the first comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to piracy. From history to geography, economics to sociology, sexuality to politics, Pennell's anthology brings together the best of current scholarship."
-Peter Galvin,Author of Patterns of Pillage: A Geography of Caribbean-based Piracy,1536--1718
"A thoroughly worthy and groundbreaking addition to the historiography of crime at sea."
"Technically well produced, with a generous allowance of illustrative plates and a good index."
-S. D. Smith,International Journal of Maritime History
