Description: Piracy is an organised crime. Even at its simplest it requires groupsor gangs to carry it out. More profitable piracy requires larger and moresophisticated organisation. Te most corrosive effect of organised crime iscorruption.
It is true that financial gain has undoubtedly been the main motiva-torfor all types of criminal, including pirates, but neither has it been farfrom the minds of maritime insurgents and terrorists. To do what theydo requires money. Short of funds since the main state sponsors of terror-ism withdrew their support, insurgents and terrorists have, in many cases,adopted not only the methods but also the mores of organised crime. Crimecorrupts, terrorism subverts and when they merge they do both.
Consequently, this book sets out to answer three questions:
1.What form does piracy take in the contemporary world?
2.What is maritime terrorism?
3.Are piracy and maritime terrorism similar or linked?
Te aim is to test the proposition that piracy and maritime terrorism,separately or together, present a threat to international security.
