Reviews



"A fascinating exposition of piracy on deck and piracy on stage where art imitates life and life imitates art in the performative lives of famous male and female pirates and actors from the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries, with a few glimpses into the present world of Disney movies and swashbuckling computer games. A widely-research, influential study immersed in cultural, historical, and theoretical contexts brings new light to the piratical works of Byron, Scott, and James Fenimore Cooper, as well as to novel themes of piracy and slavery, sexualities, rogue egalitarianism, and wildish justice. A good read!" - Richard Matlak, English Department, College of the Holy Cross, USA
