Who were the real pirates of the Caribbean (and elsewhere)? Following on from the "New York Times" number one bestseller "Pirates", comes "Pirates: Rogues' Gallery", in which we come face to face with some of the most villainous and scurrilous rogues ever to sail the seven seas. Included are Captain Henry Morgan, who began his career as a pirate and ended as Governor of Jamaica; the notorious Blackbeard, who terrorized the Caribbean and the Atlantic seaboard of America until he met his end in a dramatic shoot-out with Captain Richard Maynard; Captain Kidd, whose legendary treasure is still sought after; and William Dampier, best known today as a pioneering explorer, but who began his adventures as a privateer on the Spanish Main. It also includes special pull out items including a pirate's journal and a fold-out pistol.

About the Author:

John Matthews is the author of numerous books including number one New York Times bestseller Pirates. He has devoted much of the past 30 years to the study of Arthurian legend and of myth in general. Much in demand as a speaker, both in Europe and the USA, he has taught at (among others) the Temenos Academy in London, St Hilda's College, Oxford, the New York Open Centre, the Omega Centre and at the University of Seattle in Washington.

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
