Críticas:

"Brings the golden age of piracy to life and shows us the link to contemporary radical politics . . . A well-reasoned analysis of their legacy." Luis A. Fernandez, author, " Policing Dissent""

"If you want to understand why [piracy] happens and what it really means, this is the book to start with. While modern-day robber barons give pirating a bad name, this important book restores the balance through a lively and provocative narrative. Definitely one to read." Randall Amster, professor of peace studies, Prescott College"

"In addition to history, Gabriel Kuhn's radical piratology brings philosophy, ethnography, and cultural studies to the stark question of the time: which were the criminalsbankers and brokers or sailors and slaves? By so doing he supplies us with another case where the history isn't dead, it's not even past!" Peter Linebaugh, author, "The London Hanged," and coauthor, "The Many-Headed Hydra""

"Kuhn has written a tract pointing the way for tomorrow's revolutionaries. He subscribes to the romantic notion that pirates can somehow provide inspiration for present-day radicals and offer organizational models for attacking oppression." "Choice""

"It is an extremely engrossing work that anyone with an interest in this era of history will be rewarded for reading." www.CitizenPartridge.wordpress.com (September 2011)"

"If you re someone whose knowledge of pirates stops with Errol Flynn and Jack Sparrow but you wanted to learn more, "Life Under the Jolly Roger" will be just the grog you re thirsting for." The Tiger Manifesto, oldalexius.wordpress.com"

Reseña del editor:

Dissecting the conflicting views of the golden age of pirates?as romanticized villains on one hand and genuine social rebels on the other?this fascinating chronicle explores the political and cultural significance of these nomadic outlaws by examining a wide range of ethnographical, sociological, and philosophical standards. The meanings of race, gender, sexuality, and disability in pirate communities are analyzed and contextualized, as are the pirates' forms of organization, economy, and ethics. Going beyond simple swashbuckling adventures, the examination also discusses the pirates' self-organization, the internal make-up of the crews, and their early-1700s philosophies?all of which help explain who they were and what they truly wanted. Asserting that pirates came in all shapes, sexes, and sizes, this engaging study ultimately portrays pirates not just as mere thieves and killers but as radical activists with their own society and moral code fighting against an empire.

Buchbeschreibung PM Press. PAPERBACK. Zustand: New. 1604860529 Over the last couple of decades an ideological battle has raged over the political legacy and cultural symbolism of the "golden age" pirates who roamed the seas between the Caribbean Islands and the Indian Ocean from 1690 to 1725. They are depicted as romanticized villains on the one hand, and as genuine social rebels on the other. Life Under the Jolly Roger examines the political and cultural significance of these nomadic outlaws by relating historical accounts to a wide range of theoretical concepts ? reaching from Marshall Sahlins and Pierre Clastres to Mao-Tse Tung and Eric J. Hobsbawm via Friedrich Nietzsche and Michel Foucault. The meanings of race, gender, sexuality and disability in golden age pirate communities are analyzed and contextualized, as are the pirates? forms of organization, economy and ethics. While providing an extensive catalog of scholarly references for the academic reader, this delightful and engaging study is directed at a wide audience and demands no other requirements than a love for pirates, daring theoretical speculation and passionate, yet respectful, inquiry.
