The Admiralty (Offices of State) by N. A. M. Rodger
4.0 out of 5 stars early work by Rodger, 19 Jun 2014
Easy to read and full of interesting knowledge, this early work is good value, such as we have come to expect from the leading maritime historian.
Treasure Neverland: Real and Imaginary Pirates by Neil Rennie
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 19 Jun 2014
This is a very useful addition to literature on pirates since it tackles the less well known literary links to piracy, especially from the USA. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insights, 16 Nov 2012
After I heard the author speak on the radio, I ordered this fascinating book immediately, and it lived up to my expectations in every way. The author has used his many insider contacts to create a brilliant insight into the state of the USA today - and it is a depressing, not to say worrying one at that.If you suspect that the USA is in decline it will confirm your fears, and if you know little about their system it will open your eyes. The book is written in a very accessible style - thoroughly recommended as an absorbing read.
