Piratical Knowledge Books
history, research, books

Some of the books I worked off of when preparing for Pirate Nations were: 

Empire of Blue Water:

The Republic of Pirates:

The Dutch East India Company:

James Clavell's Asian Saga (great reads, but rather Randian philosophically):

And last but definitely not least,

Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin novels that won him a knighthood into the Order of Bath (the only person who never served in the Royal Navy to have won such an award):


There are a ton of other online resources, but those were all major inspirations for me, and helped me shape what I was thinking should go into the book.

There were tons of movies as well (PotC, Treasure Island, etc.), but I wanted to focus on the books here. :)
