Pressestimmen

'Any reader interested in the development of the Mediterranean political or economic landscape, the literature of entertainment which often featured pirate attacks, and a history of piracy based on texts of the ancient world will benefit greatly by reading this volume.' Cheryl Ward, Nautical Archaeology '... it is pithy and to-the-point and should easily take its place as the standard work of reference in English and the launching pad for all further investigations.' James Davidson, Times Literary Supplement
