The Barbary Corsairs Book

Product Description

The Barbary Corsairs Book, Warfare in the Mediterranean, 1480-1580
Jacques Heers

The Barbary Corsairs first appeared to terrorize shipping in the 16th century. These Muslim pirates sailed out of the ports of North Africa and, acting as officers of the sprawling Ottoman Empire, plundered the trading routes of the Mediterranean and sowed horror in the hearts of Christians everywhere.

In this newly translated book, Jacques Heers follows the extraordinary exploits of the "Barbarosoa" brothers, and those of other corsairs and profiteers, set against the turbulent backdrop of trade, commerce, and conflict throughout the Mediterranean during the Renaissance centuries. It's an enthralling adventure, robustly written, and it brings to life an age when travel and trade were perilous enterprises.

* An enthralling history of piracy in the Mediterranean
* Richly illustrated with colorful anecdotes
* Unusual insight into medieval Christian and Islamic relations
* 24 plates

304 pages - HC - 6 1/4" x 9 3/4"
