This is an incredibly interesting little work on a most obscure topic – the Chinese pirates that infested the waters around Canton in the early 19th century. It talks about the history of the greatest leader of these pirates, their operations, and organization. It describes several battles with the Mandarin fleets and the crushing pirate victories. And it ends with the collapse and surrender of the pirates after a conflict arose between its fleet leaders.
