Guilfoyle: Modern Piracy: Legal Challenges and Responses

Douglas Guilfoyle (Univ. College London - Law) has published Modern Piracy: Legal Challenges and Responses (Edward Elgar Publishing 2013). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:
Modern Piracy is the first book to survey the law of maritime piracy from both public law and commercial law perspectives, as well as providing a contextual overview of piracy in major hotspots. Topics covered include issues of international law, law-enforcement cooperation, private armed security, ransoms, insurance and carriage of goods by sea. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the range of legal issues presented by the modern piracy menace and will be of interest to scholars and practitioners alike.
