About this title


Demythologizing an American revolutionary hero once and for all, the author lays bare the life of John Paul Jones, a Scotsman who rose from obscurity as a lowly sailor in Catherine the Great's doomed navy to a daring raider during the Revolution, to eventual ignominy and a pauper's death in Paris.

About the Author:

Dr James Mackay is an award-winning author and historian, and is widely regarded as the world's greatest authority on the life and works of Robert Burns. As well as his definitive biography, Burns, winner of the Saltire Award for Scottish Book of the Year, he has published accounts of the lives of the great Scottish patriot William Wallace and the Irish statesman Michael Collins. He is also the author of biographies of the celebrated detective Allan Pinkerton (The Eye Who Never Slept), the poet Robert Service (Vagabond of Verse), Alexander Graham Bell (Sounds Out of Silence), Andrew Carnegie (Little Boss) and Thomas Lipton (The Man Who Invented Himself).
