Raiders And Rebels book. Such an enjoyable read - as much history of early colonialism as piracy
Raiders And Rebels book. Such an enjoyable read - as much history of early colonialism as piracy. Sherry describes the golden age piracy, a short era which spanned from 1690 to 1725, from which comes the classic image of a pirate. During this time, a loose confederacy of pirates, many of whom were former begrudged seamen enlisted in colonial navies, took to piracy, raiding merchant ships along Madagascar and the Red Sea, in the West Indies, and off the West Coast of Africa.
From 1692 to 1725 pirates sailed the oceans of the world, plundering ships laden with the riches of India, Africa, South America, and the Caribbean. Often portrayed as larger-than-life characters, these outlaw figures and their bloodthirsty exploits have long been immortalized in fiction and film.
From 1692 to 1725 pirates sailed the oceans of the world.
The Golden Age of Piracy. ring the longest and most intense outburst of piracy the world has ever experienced, when thousands of reckless, daring men-and a number of women as well-ranged the seas of the globe plundering the merchant fleets of the maritime countries. For thirty-three years-roughly between 1692 and 1725-these pirate raiders, declared enemies of the whole world, terrorized the sea-lanes, disrupted commerce, and threatened the advance of a nascent western imperialism, while fighting off all efforts to exterminate them.
