Nowadays, the maritime piracy is considered one of the most critical and pressing global issues, directly affecting the safety and security of the vessels engaged in transportation of the cargo between continents. The present publication was written with the intention of its authors to give readers a compact yet maximum informative and practically useful introduction to the field.

As we all know, the maritime piracy and its growth during the past decades was mainly caused by the relatively low risk accompanied by the huge rewards. The volume opens with the general overview where the historical background of the subject matter is covered, and also the main maritime structures governing the area are addressed.

The authors have performed a deep and professional examination of the global governance norms in the twentieth century seeking for the better ways and ideas on combating the contemporary maritime piracy. It is of course clearly understood by all parties involved, that the solution will definitely require an all-inclusive and holistic approach, and it will take time.

The authors have examined the different strategies and tried to offer a carefully worked evaluation of the most serious problems. The volume will be appreciated by the international law students, and actually anyone dealing with or interested in the maritime security.
