Piracy: Ancient and Modern

Andrew Jameson, Professor Emeritus of History, Harvard;  Assistant Vice Chancellor, UC Berkeley (Retired)

Take a realistic look at the history of high-seas theft. From the ancient Mediterranean, to the Vikings, to the pirates of the Caribbean, honesty has not always been thought to be the best policy. Professor Jameson's theoretical and personal knowledge (he was a guest lecturer on a cruise ship in the Indian Ocean that was attacked) will be detailed and illustrated.
