Abstract:

"Jack Gottschalk and Brian Flanagan call attention to the fact that, although most reported pirate assaults occur in the waters off Indonesia, Brazil, and Somalia, and in the South China Sea, no location is entirely safe. They argue that the modern-day pirate is motivated primarily by greed but is not necessarily part of an organized crime group. As the title of the book indicates, pirates often use high-powered automatic weapons, and they escape in high-speed boats. Most plan their attacks carefully, frequently using information gained through government agencies in ports. The costs in terms of both economic loss and seafarers' deaths and injuries are enormous.

To curtail the crime, the authors suggest U.S. policy reforms, new roles for government agencies and military and maritime enforcement units, and a redefinition of jurisdictions."--Jacket.
