Bibliography

From 2010 to 2015 Piracy-studies.org systematically collected a bibliography of academic works analyzing contemporary (post WWII) maritime piracy. The collection is comprised of over 500 academic books, journal articles, working papers and policy reports.  In addition some noteworthy titles on the ‘history of piracy’ and general interest literature on piracy are included. The aim of the bibliography was to gather a complete collection of academic works  on contemporary maritime piracy to facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration as well as transfer knowledge to policy analysts and counter-piracy practitioners.

The complete reference list, updated last in August 2015, can be downloaded as a PDF. You can also access the bibliography through the Mendeley network  In joining our  Piracy Studies Research Group on Mendeley, you can download the references to the reference software of your preference. By joining the group you can also add items and you will receive a frequent update of items added.

Piracy Studies is a group in Economics, Law, Social Sciences on Mendeley.

  3. I had written an Occasional Paper on Somalian Piracy ORF Occasional Paper # 16 (Sept 2010) Somalian Piracy: An alternative Perspective” (at http://www.orfonline.org) which does not seem to have found its place in your bibliography.
    In addition, as a member of the now defunct OBP (India) I have written a number of articles on the various websites on the issue of Piracy.
