Muslim captors frequently proved to be benevolent. Captives refused to give up on their freedom or their origins and religion. They aided and comforted.

    Piracy, slavery, and redemption: Barbary captivity narratives from early modern England by Daniel J. Vitkus, ed. Call Number: HTP57 ISBN: Author: Erin Smith. The Captive Sea explores the entangled histories of Muslim and Christian captives—and, by extension, of the Spanish Empire, Ottoman Algiers, and Morocco—in the seventeenth-century to argue that piracy, captivity, and redemption helped shape the Mediterranean as an integrated region at the social, political, and economic levels.

    In his book Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy, –, Ohio State University history professor Robert Davis states that most modern historians minimize the white slave estimates that slave traders from Tunis, Algiers, and Tripoli alone enslaved 1 million to million Europeans in North . Turning Turk looks at contact between the English and other cultures in the early modern Mediterranean, and analyzes the representation of that experience on the London stage. Vitkus's book demonstrates that the English encounter with exotic alterity, and the theatrical representations inspired by that encounter, helped to form the emergent identity of an English Missing: redemption book.
