MEDIA REVIEWS

"Brittany Gilmer offers readers a fascinating, front row seat to the institutional response to piracy. Her ethnography is a detailed and innovative examination of how piracy has become securitized. Understood through Gilmer's critical lens, the front line workers of development themselves become the lucrative subjects of securitization as they compete for funding and become 'piratized' in the process." - Alison Mountz, Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada
