I've wasted more time than I'd admit playing 'Pirates and Traders' on the phone (highly recommended if you have android) and it's got me interested in pirates and Caribbean history in general.
Can you suggest a good book; one which has a good focus on principal characters, 'pirates' and otherwise, ties in the economic and political background of the period, explains the development and history, but which also manages to be readable and engaging?
