This book came due at the Library & I had to return it before finishing. The next member had reserved it & it was time. A pity since I had began writing a review for hopeful publication in the Anarchist Review of Books ( or someplace. If anybody has any insights or reactions to this one, I'm all ears. (Not a Spoiler Alert but..) Obvious reference points include Hakim Bey/Peter Lamborn Wilson's book on Piracy which was published by Autonomedia a few years back. That one is titled "Pirate Utopias: Moorish Crsairs & European Renegadoes"
