A solid treatment of the subject. Sekulich hits the ground running mostly in the Straits of Malacca and goes face to face with pirates and their opponents. The result is an eye-opening portrait of a significant maritime problem. It does fall flat on the question of what to do. Sekulich doesn't have a real idea, nor does anyone he interviews.
Tales of modern-day pirates operating in all parts of the world's oceans. Unless students are really into this subject, this book probably won't get read. May be a good source for a paper on modern-day piracy. More of an adult read.
