Editorial Reviews


"This is a compelling and succinct examination of the controversies governments and organizations face when trying to combat this upsurge. Throughout the text, quotes from pirates and those who combat the problem enrich the reader's learning experience. Modern Piracy is one of the most comprehensive and up-to-date analyses on the topic ever published." - Pirates and Privateers

"This well-organized mix of historical background; case studies; and viewpoints, opinions, and analyses explores the complexities of an intriguing contemporary issue." - School Library Journal

"Marley, a naval historian, has written a definitive book on modem piracy, covering piracy from its infancy to recent events (2010). . . . This excellent resource is easy to use; chapter contents are outlined and listed with page numbers. Glossary included. Summing up: Highly recommended." - Choice
