Despite what countless buccaneering books and movies may suggest, never has there been a universal Pirate Code to bind the merry (and mean) marauders of seafaring history. In fact there have been many "codes," and drawing out their common elements into a single concept is no easy task. "The Pirate Code" is the first book to bring together thousands of years of pirating traditions in a clear and authoritative manner. Chronicling the rules and realities of pirates' shipboard life through the ages, Brenda Ralph Lewisexplores what "honor among thieves" has really meant--whether for the pirates of the ancient Aegean, the seventeenth-century Brethren of the Coast who inspired the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, or modern-day pirates on the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea. Lavishly illustrated and engagingly written, this book is a must for all serious devotees of pirate lore.
