PRAISE FOR THE REPUBLIC OF PIRATES
"Fascinating . . . beyond rip-roaring adventure stories from the distant past, [the book offers] an opportunity to understand pirates as they truly were."?The New York Times Book Review
"It's a rollicking tale, filled with rich details of the lives of men who, for their own personal gain, challenged the spread of empires."?The Times-Picayune (New Orleans)
