About this title

Synopsis:

From the 16th to the 19th centuries, Moslem corsairs from the Barbary Coast ravaged European shipping and enslaved thousands of unlucky captives. During this same period, thousands more Europeans converted to Islam and joined the pirate holy war. Were these men (and women) the scum of the seas, apostates, traitors—Renegadoes? Or did they abandon and betray Christendom as a praxis of social resistance? Second edition, with new material documenting piracy in the very early days of New York City.

About the Author:

Peter Lamborn Wilson is a notorious underground intellectual who has written histories of heretical sufism, spiritual anarchism in Colonial America, hallucinogenic mushroom lore in Irish literature, and other traditions of autonomy in pre-modern and modern times. He lives in upstate New York.
