About the Author:

John Matthews is the author of numerous books including the #1 New York Times Best-Seller, PIRATES and the highly successful King Arthur for Carlton Books. He has a long-held fascination for the subject of King Arthur. He lives in London, England.

From Booklist:

The dark, jacketless cover of Matthews' Pirates, one of the most striking covers in recent memory, features a mottled-white skull with a gleaming gold tooth, a patch over one eye socket, and, in the other, a red "jewel" imbedded in the hardcover boards. A browser's delight, this introduction to seventeenth- and eighteenth-century pirates in the Caribbean, printed on extra-heavy stock, offers plenty of information in a colorfully illustrated, highly accessible format. Nearly every double-page spread has a special feature: a facsimile of a document or playing cards to be slipped out of envelopes, fold-out pages, small books glued onto large pages. But even should some of these less-permanent extras abandon ship, there's still plenty to interest pirate fans, from the "Pirate Gallery" of short biographies to the detailed illustration of the vessel Queen Anne's Revenge, its parts carefully labeled. A time line, a glossary, and short lists of source books and recommended Web sites round out the presentation. Carolyn Phelan
