Pirates of Somalia, The
For centuries stories of pirates have captured imaginations around the world. The recent ragtag band of pirates off the coast of Somalia, hijacking multimillion dollar tankers owned by international shipping conglomerates, have brought the scourge of piracy into the modern era. Jay Bahadur’s riveting narrative expose-the first of its kind – looks at who these men are, how they live, the forces that created piracy in Somalia, how the pirates spend the ransom money, how they deal with their hostages, and much, much more. It is a revelation of a dangerous world at the epicentre of political and natural disaster.
