20719Re: Japanese piracy
- Mar 8, 2006Japanese 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...
