Book excerpt: Southeast Asia contains some of the world's busiest shipping waters, particularly the Indonesian archipelago, the Straits of Malacca and South China Sea. The natural geography and human ecology of maritime Southeast Asia makes the area particularly apt for piracy. It is perhaps no surprise, then, that these waters are also the world's most pirate-infested, accounting for over a third of the total number of pirate attacks world-wide. The figures have increased in recent years, as transnationally organized crime syndicates have extended their activities in the area. Meanwhile, the capacity of the state authorities in the region to suppress piracy appears to have declined, fuelling suspicions that sections of the maritime authorities are colluding with some of the organized pirate gangs that they are supposed to be combating. Not surprisingly, piracy has a long history in the region, and in several instances during the last 250 years, pirates have disrupted peaceful trade and communications. This text traces the shifting character and development of Southeast Asian piracy from the 18th century to the present day, demonstrating how political, economic, social and technological factors have contributed to change - but have by no means exterminated - the phenomenon. -- Description from http://www.amazon.co.uk (Oct. 19, 2011).

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The first volume devoted to literary pirates in the nineteenth century, this collection examines changes in the representation of the pirate from the beginning of the nineteenth century through the late Victorian period. Gone were the dangerous ruffians of the eighteenth-century novel and in their place emerged a set of brooding and lovable rogues, as exemplified by Byron's Corsair. As the contributors engage with acts of piracy by men and women in the literary marketplace as well as on the high seas, they show that both forms were foundational in the promotion and execution of Britain's imperial ambitions. Linking the pirate's development as a literary figure with the history of piracy and the making of the modern state tells us much about race, class, and evolving gender relationships. While individual chapters examine key texts like Treasure Island, Dickens's 1857 'mutiny' story in Household Words, and Peter Pan, the collection as a whole interrogates the growth of pirate myths and folklore throughout the nineteenth century and the depiction of their nautical heirs in contemporary literature and culture.

This book was released on 2018-09-18 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: With surprising tales of vicious mutineers, imperial riches, and high-seas intrigue, Black Flags, Blue Waters is “rumbustious enough for the adventure-hungry” (Peter Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle). Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, Black Flags, Blue Waters reveals the surprising history of American piracy’s “Golden Age” - spanning the late 1600s through the early 1700s - when lawless pirates plied the coastal waters of North America and beyond. “Deftly blending scholarship and drama” (Richard Zacks), best-selling author Eric Jay Dolin illustrates how American colonists at first supported these outrageous pirates in an early display of solidarity against the Crown, and then violently opposed them. Through engrossing episodes of roguish glamour and extreme brutality, Dolin depicts the star pirates of this period, among them the towering Blackbeard, the ill-fated Captain Kidd, and sadistic Edward Low, who delighted in torturing his prey. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Black Flags, Blue Waters is a “tour de force history” (Michael Pierce, Midwestern Rewind) of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.

Download or read book The New Pirates written by Andrew Palmer and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2014-08-15 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Piracy is a significant global threat to international sea-borne trade - the life-blood of modern industrial economies and vital for world economic survival. The pirates of today are constantly in the world's news media, preying on private and merchant shipping from small, high-speed vessels. Andrew Palmer here provides the historical background to the new piracy, its impact on the shipping and insurance industries and also considers the role of international bodies like the UN and the International Maritime Bureau, international law and the development of advanced naval and military measures. He shows how this 'new' piracy is rooted in the geopolitics and socio-economic conditions of the late-20th century where populations live on the margins and where weak or 'failed states' can encourage criminal activity and even international terrorism. Somalia is considered to be the nest of piracy, but hotspots include not only the Red Sea region, but also the whole Indian Ocean, West Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia and the South China Seas.

Book excerpt: It was not mere impulsive action when Bron Hoddan started for the planet Walden by stowing away on a ship that had come to his native planet to hang all his relatives. He'd planned it long before. It was a long-cherished and carefully worked out scheme. He didn't expect the hanging of his relatives, of course. He knew that they'd act grieved and innocent, and give proof that they were simple people leading blameless lives. They'd make their would-be executioners feel ashamed and apologetic for having thought evil of them, and as soon as the strangers left they'd return to their normal way of life, which was piracy. But while this was going on, Bron Hoddan stowed away on the menacing vessel. Presently he arrived at its home world. But his ambition was to reach Walden, so he set about getting there. It took a long time because he had to earn ship-passage from one solar system to another, but he held to his idea. Walden was the most civilized planet in that part of the galaxy. On Walden, Hoddan intended, in order (a) to achieve splendid things as an electronic engineer, (b) to grow satisfactorily rich, (c) to marry a delightful girl, and (d) end his life a great man. But he had to spend two years trying to arrange even the first....

This book takes an engaging look at pirate mythology and assigns a “fact” or “phony” evaluation to many of the things commonly associated with the swashbuckling sailors. Did pirates really make people “walk the plank” or carry around treasure maps? Loaded with fact boxes and explanations of how many of these pirate myths originated, readers will love discovering more about real pirates.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The true story of the Caribbean Piracy has been obscured through time by whimsical stories, which create confusing and distorted images of these characters, by not defining the line that divides reality from fiction. In this book we will see the stark truth about them. We do not intend to give an exhaustive view of this activity, but rather to tell several stories based on the information obtained through documents from the protagonists of the events themselves, that is, from their victims and their persecutors. Most of them terrible, others romantic and heroic, about the life and actions of these legendary characters. Those who had as their framework of life the excessive ambition. A situation that generated a violent power struggle in the Caribbean, of people driven mad by the thirst for wealth, who lived on the edge of the abyss, expressing the worst of their twisted feelings. Bringing this as a result, actions of irreversible consequences, many of them served as an instrument to European empires with expansionist pretensions. They benefited in this way from the exploitation of the wealth that Spain obtained in America, on an exclusive basis. They used their supremacy as a power to impose a commercial and territorial monopoly in the new continent. Others acted on their own or in partnership with greedy merchants. We intend to tell the stories around the facts, so that we can approach reality in a more efficient and direct way than in a conventional history book, thus offering a fully separated version of the myth in which these characters have been involved throughout time. Although several volumes of hundreds of pages would be necessary to relate the numerous acts of barbarism committed by these pirate men and women, although the latter in a very reduced number. We have summarized in it, the most prominent actors who left their mark on the Caribbean region. In the golden age of this society of adventurers. In this book we will get to know the rea

Download or read book Medieval Pirates written by Jill Eddison and published by The History Press. This book was released on 2013-09-02 with total page 245 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the Medieval Period the English Channel was a particularly perilous stretch of water. It had two distinct (and often conflicting) functions: as a rich commercial seaway, on which the rising economy of the Western world depended; and secondly as a wide, lawless, political frontier between two belligerent monarchies, whose kings encouraged piracy as a cheap alternative to warfare, and enjoyed their own cut. Pirates prospered. They stole ships and cargoes, at sea or in port, and they carried out long-lasting vendettas against other groups. They ransomed the richest of their captives, but tipped innumerable sailors overboard. While kings were ambivalent, foreign relations were imperilled, and although it was briefly quelled by Henry V, piracy was never defeated during this turbulent epoch. Breaking new ground, on a subject that remains topical today, Jill Eddison explores medieval piracy as it waxed and waned, setting dramatic life stories against the better-known landmarks of history.
