Eric Jay Dolin discusses Black Flags, Blue Waters

Eric Jay Dolin discusses Black Flags, Blue Waters
Description:

Against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, this history of the “golden age” of piracy recounts tales of vicious mutineers, imperial riches, and high-seas intrigue upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Dolin provides this wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.

Eric Jay Dolin is the best-selling author of Leviathan and Brilliant Beacons. He and his family live in Marblehead, Massachusetts, from which the pirate John Quelch departed in 1703, and returned to in 1704, only to be hanged in Boston.
