This work prepared by one of the most recognized industry experts is intended to provide an excellent introduction to the world of modern maritime piracy which is unimaginably dangerous. The maritime piracy is commonly associated with the figures from blockbuster films and picture books; however, in fact this is not that romantic and pirates of today are terrorizing oceans of the world, claiming human lives and presenting real threat.

Mariners are attacked by pirates on regular basis, and the attackers are very well armed, most of them having automatic guns and some of them possessing even rocket launchers. The victims are dumped overboard, injured, seized as hostages and even killed. The present book will tell readers about all aspects of modern maritime piracy covering many disasters at sea.

One of the last occasions was the container vessel Maersk Atlanta attacked by the armed pirates, it was the subject of the very popular Captain Philips movie capturing the imagination of the broad audience - it helped a lot to raise people's awareness of the piracy. Have a look in this volume if your job may be affected by the maritime pirates or if you are interested in the shipping since unfortunately the armed maritime piracy is becoming one of the integral parts of the industry.
