About the Author

Eric Jay Dolin is the best-selling author of Black Flags, Blue Waters and Leviathan. He and his family live in Marblehead, Massachusetts.


"A masterly and vivid account of the pirates who operated around America's coasts in the late 1600s and early 1700s. Using an impressive array of sources, Eric Jay Dolin throws a fresh light on familiar stories, unearths some new and surprising facts, and skillfully sets the exploits of a notorious generation of pirates in their historical context." -- David Cordingly, author of Under the Black Flag
"Through engrossing episodes of roguish glamour and extreme brutality, Dolin depicts the star pirates of this period... Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Dolin provides this wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life." -- Sea Breezes
"An entertaining romp across the oceans that shows how piracy is an inseparable element of our past... Mr. Dolin has a keen eye for detail and the telling episode. Readers will learn fascinating tidbits of language, habits and cultural assimilation." -- Rinker Buck - The Wall Street Journal
"This book will appeal not only to scholars of the golden ages of piracy and exploration, but to anyone who enjoys a dramatic, well-told story. Black Flags. Blue Waters is an important work in its field, rich in scholarly sources and providing some welcome historical context for piracy's heyday and inevitable decline. It is immensely readable, and at least as thrilling and action-packed as any pirate legend!" -- All About History
"I must admit having a lingering fascination for the gruesome deeds of some essentially desperate characters. All in all, it's a good read." -- Sailing Today
