What is it with pirates? From Somali fishermen to DVD hawkers to childrens parties, pirates are all around us and their ‘Jolly Roger’ motif can be found on everything from skateboards to baby-grows. Yet the original pirates were mutineers, rebelling against the brutal and violent oppression of the princes and merchants who enslaved them. How has their fight become ours? In this wide-reaching and eye-opening book, Kester Brewin fuses history, philosophy and sociology to explore the place of piracy in our history and culture, and, calling on Blackbeard, Luke Skywalker, Peter Pan and Odysseus, chases pirates through literature and film into the deepest realms of personal development, art, economics and belief.
