Summary
This is an extraordinary record of the European renegades and Islamic sea-rovers who terrorised the Mediterranean and beyond throughout the seventeenth century. Studying the origins of these men, their culture and practices - from pirate etiquette to intimidation tactics - the author recreates the twilight world of the corsairs in details, and uncovers a remarkable clash of civilisations
