Pillaging the Empire (HUM303)

If you’re interested in further context for Captain Blood, you could consult this chapter from Kris Lane’s Pillaging the Empire: Piracy in the Americas, 1500-1750. Here it is as a pdf: pillaging

A pdf version of Alexander Exquemelin’s The Buccaneers of America is also available at books.google.com, though it’s an earlier British translation which redacts passages that reflect poorly on the English.
