This second edition of Kris Lane's best-selling Pillaging the Empire retains its concise narrative form, but now includes an updated review of pirate scholarship since the first edition was published in 1998, including a new section on piracy in East and Southeast Asia in the early modern period. Lane's treatment of piracy between 1500 and 1750 remains unique in its broad coverage and inclusion of victims' perspectives. With the inclusion of new material on piracy in East and Southeast Asia, the book is now unique for narrating global piracy. This engaging story of maritime predation from the age of Columbus to the reign of Charles V of Spain is a fascinating account of the complex phenomenon that was the classic age of piracy. The well-known pirate leaders such as Francis Drake and Henry Morgan are present along with lesser-known figures such as Ann Bonny and Mary Read, two of the few female pirates on record. Pillaging the Empire brushes aside many legends, and pays careful attention to the varied circumstances and still more varied motives that led to the rise of this bloodthirsty pursuit of riches.

Kris Lane received his B.A. in History and Latin American Studies from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 1991, and his Ph.D in History from the University of Minnesota in 1996. Lane specializes in Colonial Latin American history, focusing mostly on mining in the Andes Mountains of South America. Lane's books include PILLAGING THE EMPIRE: PIRACY IN THE AMERICAS, 1500-1750 (1998) and QUITO, 1599: CITY & COLONY IN TRANSITION (2002). He also edited Bernardo de Vargas MACHUCA'S INDIAN MILITIA AND DESCRIPTION OF THE INDIES (2008) and DEFENSE OF THE WESTERN CONQUESTS (2009). Lane has also published articles on piracy, slavery, gold mining, headhunting, and witchcraft in colonial Ecuador and Colombia. His new book, COLOR OF PARADISE: COLOMBIAN EMERALDS IN THE AGE OF GUNPOWDER EMPIRES, is due out in 2010.
