Two books were published at the end of 2006 / start of 2007: one about offshore radio in Britain and Holland, the other about Israel's most famous maritime station, the Voice of Peace.
The book on the Voice of Peace, and its founder Abie Nathan, is written and edited by Hans Knot. He has previously published a large number of books on the subject of offshore radio in both Dutch and English, including The Wet And Wild History Of Radio Caroline.
During the past year a lot of work has been done to research not only the history of the Voice of Peace but also the various humanitarian jobs Abe
Nathan has done through the past four decades.
The other book has been out before, in fact it was the first to be published on the subject of offshore radio. Paul Harris's definitive book, When Pirates Ruled The Waves,
is now re-issued in a revised form. When Paul first wrote the book in 1968, nobody wanted to publish it. The recently introduced Marine Offences Act made it illegal to “promote” offshore radio and
people were scared. So he published it himself. This was a brave decision but, at the age of 17 - as Paul was at the time - teenage enthusiasm can often outweigh caution. As it turned out, it was not only brave
but also a very profitable decision as the book went on to sell extremely well. Paul was later to get involved in the setting-up of an offshore station, the Dutch sweet music outlet Capital Radio. This was not a
success but it did lead to his second book, To Be A Pirate King, which covered the stations of the early seventies. These two two books were later combined in Broadcasting From The High Seas
and, despite the title, this new edition is actually a revised version of that omnibus volume.
This is to advise you that my book When Pirates Ruled The Waves, which was published in 4 editions 1968-70, and subsequently re-issued in 1978
as Broadcasting From The High Seas, will be re-published in October 2006 by Kennedy & Boyd Publishers, Glasgow. The text and illustration will be substantially the same as Broadcasting From The High Seas,
with updates, a new introductory chapter and some new illustrations.
