Description: Pirates are outlaws who move quickly, a form of lawlessness based on the application of immense short-term power by mobile forces which fade away, similar to guerrilla warfare.
In Pirates and Privateers Tom Bowling offers a lively history of piracy, from ancient times through the “privateers” such as Morgan, with their Letters of Marque (an early example of State-sponsored terrorism), to the still real and flourishing threat of contemporary pirates that patrol the less well-regulated shipping lanes of the world today.
