Pirates Of Barbary (HC/PB)

Author Adrian Tinniswood has a new book which was released in the UK, in hardcover and paperback, on 18 March 2010, Pirates Of Barbary: Corsairs, Conquests and Captivity in the 17th-Century Mediterranean

Pirates of Barbary is an extraordinary record of the European renegades and Islamic sea-rovers who terrorised the Mediterranean and beyond throughout the seventeenth century. From the coast of Southern Europe to Morocco and the Ottoman states of Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli, Christian and Muslim seafarers met in bustling ports to swap religions, to battle and to trade goods and slaves – raiding as far as Iceland and New England in search of their human currency.
