about this item

For this rousing, revisionist history, the former head of exhibitions at England's National Maritime Museum has combed original documents and records to produce a most authoritative and definitive account of piracy's "Golden Age." As he explodes many accepted myths (i.e. "walking the plank" is pure fiction), Cordingly replaces them with a truth that is more complex and often bloodier. 16 pp. of photos. Maps.From the Hardcover edition.
A revisionist history of the golden age of piracy draws on original archive records to provide a realistic study of pirates and their lives that refutes many of the myths about the era.
