Great read, especially in light of our current conflict with Libya. I had only encountered the Barbary Wars as a sidenote in other historical texts, so it was good to get the whole story from beginning to end like this. Lambert does an excellent job of conveying the facts and placing the conflict in context of the other major events of early US history (the Constitution, War of 1812, etc.).
