Here is Pirates of the Caribbeans for adults. Its a great beach read.

Under the Black Flag: The Romance and the Reality of Life Among the Pirates is slightly above History Channel tier, maybe Smithsonian channel, and is informational, but by no means a peer reviewed masterpiece.

Rediker, Marcus. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 1993.

A vivid portrayal of Anglo-American seafaring and piracy in the 18th century, set against the larger issues of social upheaval and the rise of capitalism. Rediker compares favorably the democratic life aboard a pirate ship and the tyrannical hierarchy faced by “Jack Tar” aboard the Merchant or Royal Navy.

Sherry, Frank. Raiders and Rebels: The Golden Age of Piracy. New York: Hearst Marine, 1986.

Sherry presents a chronological history of the Golden Age of piracy, examining both the causes and consequences of piracy. Several chapters are devoted to the “outlaw nation” established on Madagascar, described by the author as the “only one true democracy on earth.” Sherry also discusses pirates’ insistence on individual rights and their adherence to codes of behavior.
