Between 1500 and 1750, European expansion and global interaction produced vast wealth. As goods traveled by ship along new global trade routes, piracy also flourished on the world’s seas. Pillaging the Empire tells the fascinating story of maritime predation in this period, including the perspectives of both pirates and their victims. Brushing aside the romantic legends of piracy, Kris Lane pays careful attention to the varied circumstances and motives that led to the rise of this bloodthirsty pursuit of riches, and places the history of piracy in the context of early modern empire building. This second edition of Pillaging the Empire has been revised and expanded to incorporate the latest scholarship on piracy, maritime law, and early modern state formation. With a new chapter on piracy in East and Southeast Asia, Lane considers piracy as a global phenomenon. Filled with colorful details and stories of individual pirates from Francis Drake to the women pirates Ann Bonny and Mary Read, this engaging narrative will be of interest to all those studying the history of Latin America, the Atlantic world, and the global empires of the early modern era.

South of Lethbridge, Alberta, Highway 62 climbs from the floor of an ancient glacial lake to the crest of a low ridge, crosses a continental divide and drops to meet the Milk River arching up from Montana. The austere, dry land within this great three-hundred-mile ellipse is home to the continents last vestiges of shortgrass plains and holds a history unique in all the Americas. Now parts of Montana, Alberta, and Saskatchewan, Milk River country has been at the centre of the epic boom-and-bust extremes that gave final shape to the Prairie West. It was the place where the last continental glaciers stalled and began to die. It was the ancient domain of the Blackfoot and Assiniboine peoples, and then, in the 150 years it took to settle the course of European empire in North America, it lived under the flags of five nations-France, Spain, Great Britain, the United States, and Canada. It was here, as European settlement encroached, that the remnant buffalo, the prairie wolf, and the plains grizzly waited out their final days. It was here that Sitting Bull and Little Soldier and Chief Joseph drew the final curtain on the brilliant horse cultures of the plains nations, here that cattlemen found their last free range, and here that the brief dreams of the last homesteaders dried up and blew away. Originally published in 1995 and short-listed for the 1996 Writers Guild of Alberta's award for nonfiction, Hope's Last Home is one of the very best books ever written about the West, an intimate journey into the fascinating history of a final frontier.

They came from across Long Island Sound, Tories in search of plunder and ransom, bringing terror to Hope Wakeman's Connecticut home. The family is defenseless now that Father is away serving in General Washington's army. They can only watch as Noah Thomas and his crew strip the house of treasured belongings. And before she realizes what is happening, Hope finds herself a captive and a slave to Thomas's ill-tempered wife. Hope has one unlikely ally: Thomas's plucky mother is a different sort of Tory, one who sees beyond partisan divisions. Together the frail old woman and the girl set off in search of safety, on a journey that takes them from the tiny villages of Long Island to the bustling Tory stronghold of Manhattan. A map helps readers follow along on this journey, during which many astonishing things are revealed to Hope about herself and her companion.
