Reviews

"A thoroughly worthy and groundbreaking addition to the historiography of crime at sea." Sea History "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 "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 "Technically well produced, with a generous allowance of illustrative plates and a good index." S. D. Smith, International Journal of Maritime History "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 "With this collection, those swashbuckling heroes, or villains, ranging the wide seas in search of pillage and plunder, become individuals and groups situated firmly within their own geographic, political, economic, and historical contexts." Journal of Folklore Research
