    As well as the 'golden age' of piracy in the West, with its sea rovers, privateers, buccaneers and notorious characters such as Blackbeard, Black Barty and William Kidd, this history covers piracy from ancient times to the present day; from the bloodthirsty Viking raiders who terrorized northern Europe to Lai Choi San, the legendary female Chinese pirate who commanded a fleet of eleven junks in the 1920s, and recent piracy off the coast of Somalia.
