This book provides a history of piracy. "Traditional piracy is a crime of ancient origin.... It has existed as long as there have been ships at sea because pirates have sought to steal from them. Internationally, laws against piracy have ancient origins, too, but advanced technical law developed chiefly in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with codification in treaties coming half way through the twentieth century. The United States has cooperated with other nations to combat piracy at the international level in the twentieth century." -James Biser Whisker and John R. Coe (Introduction)
