      Japanese piracy is not a very common subject, I must say (my SCA
      character is a Japanese pirate, so I know). I found a 20 page essay
      online that a professor did while he was a student at the University
      of Michigan. His name is Peter D. Shapinsky. It's the most in depth
      piece I've found on the subject so far. I emailed him in the hopes
      of finding out what his sources were for that essay, and I have not
      gotten a response from him yet. Of course, if I come across anything
      else, I will post it here...
