The threat of maritime piracy has exploded in the last decade, causing insurance costs to skyrocket and incurring losses estimated to be in the billions of dollars each year.

Pirates operating off the Horn of Africa repeatedly disrupt the oil supply from the Persian Gulf as well as shipping traffic through the Suez Canal and the western Indian Ocean. The problem of piracy is a common topic of discussion within the shipping industry as well as among insurance companies, government officials, media, and academia.

Contemporary Maritime Piracy: International Law, Strategy, and Diplomacy at Sea comprises three sections, the first of which contains chapters on historical and contemporary piracy, international law and diplomacy, and coalition strategies for combating future piracy. The second and third parts provide collections of historic profiles and relevant documents.
