This review is from: Life Among the Pirates: The Romance and the Reality (Paperback)
Life Among the Pirates is a tremendously well written, engaging, and thoroughly scholarly overview of the subject of Pirates and Piracy. While the focus is primarily on piracy in the Caribbean during the golden age of Piracy (1650-1725), it does touch upon piracy in other times and other regions.
It reads beautifully - Cordingly manages to combine a mastery of the subject matter with the execution of a skilled storyteller, and the result is a book I would recommend to anyone interested in learning more about the truth behind the myths.
