Home Browse Books Book details, Contemporary Maritime Piracy: International Law,. With two decades of maritime security experience, Commander Kraska is uniquely qualified to examine piracy. Piracy directly affects only a small percentage of international shipping, but indirectly the crime impacts thousands of vessels through increased insurance premiums and changed trade routes. Satisfying the demands of pirates has historically resulted in payment of billions of dollars in tribute and ransom, and this money provides support to illicit organized crime syndicates.

Maritime threats are increasingly sophisticated, lethal and transnational. The response to Somali piracy underscores the necessity of collaboration, though partnering is equally valuable to address, among other threats, weapons smuggling, drug traffickers and fishing incursions occurring globally

International Law, Strategy, and Diplomacy at Sea. by James Kraska Foreword by Brian Wilson. In the waters off the Horn of Africa, Somali pirates endanger critical oil shipping. The area is so vast that international naval patrols have proved relatively futile.

An essential book for understanding why maritime piracy is spiking today and what has been done to combat this timeless crime. I had the honor of writing the foreword and enthusiastically recommend it to anyone interested in international relations, international law, maritime security or history.

The author, Commander Kraska, an active duty Naval Judge Advocate, is widely regarded as one of the leading scholars on piracy and his deft pen and insight are obvious throughout the book. Commander Kraska vividly traces the roots of piracy from the Greek and Roman periods to Somalia. He also skillfully discusses international law, naval strategy, diplomacy and international criminal prosecutions. I particularly like that Contemporary Maritime Piracy is an accessible book that is not filled with legal jargon.

This is a valuable book for scholars and practitioners: The documents that are included in the appendix represent, in my view, the single greatest source of relevant piracy documents in any book.

This book is a handbook for maritime piracy scholars or diplomats and military personnel. Kraska writes fluidly and provides the legal texts for how policy makers are addressing piracy. This is one of my all time favourite texts and is a must read for anyone who is truly wanting to dig deep into the world of modern maritime piracy.
