The Sovereign and the Pirate

Ordering Maritime Subjects in India's Western Littoral

Lakshmi Subramanian

  • Focuses on one of the less researched aspects of maritime history in the Indian Ocean-piracy
  • The issue of piracy has been in discussion in recent times and this book grounds its various aspects in their appropriate historical context
  • Links piracy to colonial rule, which so far has mostly been seen in terms of territorial control and administration over land
