The present title contains the results of the intensive researches conducted by the authors during the past decade. Their original intention was to thoroughly analyze the maritime piracy geography as well as the political economy. Some ten years ago there was a splash in the number of piracy attacks in the Gulf of Aden region, including the “Maersk Alabama” case, and this actually made the authors to check the piracy matters more closely.
The contemporary maritime piracy provided them with a starting point from where the authors started their work. In order to get to the better understanding of the factors affecting the re-emerging of the maritime piracy around 1980-es, we need to pay attention to the global trends, such as the expansion of the maritime trade volumes after the Cold War etc.
However, the real conditions for the maritime piracy persistence were actually created by the local political/economic configurations and this is what is addressed in the pages of this publication, highlighting the significance of the looking through the historical records to get the idea of the crime and conflict dynamics. The book will be beneficial to the people willing to know the underlying factors with respect to the modern piracy.
