The World for Ransom: Piracy is terrorism, terrorism is piracy (online catalog)

Attacks on cargo ships along the Somali coast by maritime thieves have recast the image of piracy for the twenty-first century. Gone is the faded sepia image of Captain Kidd and buried treasure. In its place are gangs of seaborne brigands with rocket launchers, who bear a striking resemblance in appearance and actions to terrorists.

As jurist and historian Douglas R. Burgess Jr. argues in this compelling study, the case for linking piracy and terrorism goes much deeper than shared imagery. In fact, from a legal standpoint piracy may offer civilized society the key to fighting international terrorism.
Drawing both from historical examples and the present-day situation in the Gulf of Aden, Burgess proves that piracy and terrorism are the same crime. – Description from the publisher.
