THE PIRATES OF SOMALIA is the first book on its subject, so we’re glad we’re being told it’s a good one. It’s a topic everyone has heard of, but that no one knows much about.
“An insightful report. . . revelatory journalism and astute analysis of causes and solutions that prove far more informative than any TV footage about the contemporary piracy problem.”
“The inner workings of the world of Somali pirates are astutely explored by Bahadur. . . an engaging account, full of solid analysis. . . What’s especially impressive (aside from Bahadur’s sheer nerve in insinuating himself among these dangerous men in a lawless corner of the world) is the amassing of multiple perspectives—of pirates and policymakers—that support a rich, suspenseful account.”

“A rare inside look. . . a nicely crafted, revealing report.”
