Pirates have long lived in the realm of romance and fantasy, symbolizing lawlessness and radical visions of freedom. What was the reality? In Madagascar, David Graeber encountered the Zana-Malata, descendants of the many pirates who settled on the island at the beginning of the 18th century. As Graeber details here, pirate societies were vibrant, imaginative experiments in self-governance and alternative social formations, prospering at the edges of the European empire.
