Availability: In stock

€40.00 (VAT included)

Look inside

Edited by Gelina Harlaftis, Dimitris Dimitropoulos and David Starkey
Athens, 2016


This volume features 10 select papers from the 2nd International Scientific Conference of the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation (Athens, October 2014). Chiefly based on primary archival sources, the essays in this edition offer a rich, vivid and accurate overview of piracy and corsairing, a phenomenon of significant impact on the historical, political, financial, juridical and cultural developments in the Eastern Mediterranean (and beyond) from the 15th century onwards. These select papers prove that those of us who insist on believing that pirates and corsairs were nothing more than unconventional, bohemian characters, in some romantic reverie that has little to do with our reality, should probably reconsider.
