Review:

"Brave and exhaustively reported. . . . Bahadur has gone deep in exploring the causes of this seaborne crime wave." --The New York Times Book Review

"Bahadur has borne witness and seen what no other journalist has seen. He has peeked behind the curtain of the pirates of Somalia in their faraway tribal homelands . . . and lived to tell about it." --The Boston Globe

"A fascinating narrative that opens a hitherto largely unknown world to a wider audience." --San Francisco Chronicle

"An illuminating guide. . . . Bahadur has probably spent more time with Somali pirates than just about any other Western researcher or writer." --The New Republic

"A first-of-its kind book. . . . Takes readers through the evolution of the pirate groups from garrulous, self-proclaimed vigilantes who claim they are protecting Somalia's waters from illegal fishing vessels to the deadly criminal gangs they are today." --Associated Press

"Convincing. . . . In Bahadur's telling, the fractured, tribal governance of Somalia's territories is almost unbelievable in its dysfunction. And the year-by-year evolution of Somalian piracy is mesmerizing. . . . Look to The Pirates of Somalia for an aggregation
of all the news stories about this phenomenon over the past four years, with the additional, intimate layer--stories of the pirates from the pirates themselves--that no one else was reckless enough to get." --The Plain Dealer

"This vivid and intelligent study of Somali pirates uncovers the reckless men behind the nation's most lucrative business. . . . A
balanced and fascinating portrait." --The Sunday Times (London)

"An insightful report. . . . Revelatory journalism and astute analysisof causes and solutions that prove far more informative than any
TV footage about the contemporary piracy problem." --Booklist

"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." --Publishers Weekly
