'Maritime Private Security should be required reading for anyone interested in maritime history and current challenges. Importantly, this book fills a void in the growing literature on counter-piracy operations by examining the expanding role of the private sector. As nations face the challenge of declining naval force structure, this volume promises to continue as a staple on the bookshelves of those interested in maritime security.' - Brian Wilson, International Journal of Maritime History, Vol. 24, 1, June 2012
'Maritime Private Security is a must read for anyone interested in how today's world economy and society influence combating piracy and maritime terrorism now and inthe future.' - Cindy Vallar, Pirates and Privateers
