Item description for Contemporary Maritime Piracy in Southeast Asia: History, Causes and Remedies by Adam J Young...

This book explores contemporary maritime piracy in Southeast Asia, demonstrating the utility of using historical context in developing policy approaches that will address the roots of this resurgent phenomenon. The depth and breadth of historical piracy help highlight causative factors of contemporary piracy, which are immersed in the socio-cultural matrix of maritime-oriented peoples to whom piracy is still a "thinkable" option. The threats to life and property posed by piracy are relatively low, but significant given the strategic nature of these waterways that link the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and because piracy is emblematic of broader issues of weak state control in the littoral states of the region. Maritime piracy will never be completely eliminated, but with a progressive economic and political agenda aimed at changing the environment from which piracy is emerging, it could once again become the exception rather than the rule.

Reviews - What do customers think about Contemporary Maritime Piracy in Southeast Asia: History, Causes and Remedies?

Excellent Introductory Book on the Subject  May 27, 2008
The author has done a great job linking historical and cultural influences on today's maritime security challenges. He points out that often the Western media (or Western historical documents and journals) will have a tendency to fit what they see into what they understand. For instance. piracy may not necessarily be the best description for some of the activities that occurred in the region during rapid European colonization and exploitation. For students, foreign area officers, or researchers on the subject of piracy, this is a fine start. Some of the authors solutions, however, will not be new ideas to those who have been working maritime security issues.
