MEDIA 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
