Product description

Review

"A treasure. . . . [Adrian] Johns portrays the British radio pirates not in the warm glow of sentimental memory that the period usually enjoys but in the historian 's cold bright light." --Randall Bloomquist

...a fascinating slice of Sixties sleaze...with implications for our times. --The Independent

"...a well-written tale of the high C s." --The Economist

About the Author

Adrian Johns is a professor of history at the University of Chicago. Educated at Cambridge University, Johns is a specialist on intellectual property and piracy.
