ABSTRACT

Piracy and Maritime Crime: Historical and Modern Case Studies   [open pdf - 4MB]

This Naval War College Newport Paper is "an academic and comparative examination of twelve selected case studies form maritime history and used to illuminate a range of concepts and uses of piracy suppression. The twelve case studies provide the basis for the conclusions, an approach that provides a more thorough understanding of the uses and limitations of naval antipiracy operations in the context of new maritime technologies and within a wider range of modern national policy goals than might otherwise be achievable. Above all, this collection provides a sound basis for comparative analysis of varying historical experiences that can stimulate new and original thinking about a basic but often overlooked naval duty."
