Somali piracy is repeatedly associated with the historical specter of Barbary. Indeed, piracy off the Horn of Africa has matched the spread of conflict and chaos that allow criminal elites to assume power. The world now fears Somalia has become too much of a safe haven for terrorists who wish to wreck havoc on the developed world. Western policy towards Somalia focuses solely on the country's poverty-stricken Islamic population, which, with its proximity to the Arabian peninsula, seems to be a hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism, and ripe for Islamist exploitation. Martin Murphy, author of the difinitive guide to modern maritime piracy and terrorism, examines whether state failure is a useful and accurate explanation for Somali piracy and whether violent Islamism might exploit modern piracy for its own gain. Murphy employs his critically-acclaimed approach to review the history, motivation, organization, criminal methods, and operational tactics of Somali piracy from its initial manifestation in the mid-1990s to today.He links their activities and fortunes to the rise and fall of Somalia's political groups; explains how and why violent Islamists operate within Somalia; and follows the extent to which they might exploit maritime dimensions in the future. In conclusion, Murphy considers whether the various political and military solutions being used to meet these challenges will effectively resolve them.… (mer)

Somali piracy has been linked repeatedly to the spectre of Barbary. Piracy off the Horn of Africa has certainly raged with the intensity of a perfect storm with the spread of conflict and disorder. The purpose of this book is to examine whether or not state failure is a useful and accurate explanation for Somali piracy and if violent Islamism could exploit what the pirates have achieved for their own ends. It reviews the history, motivation, organization, criminal methods and operational tactics of the Somali pirates from their first manifestations in the mid-1990s to the present. It attempts to show that their activities and their fortunes are linked to the rise and fall of political groups within Somalia. It asks why and how violent Islamist groups operate within Somalia and the degree to which they might exploit the maritime dimension in the future. Finally it reviews whether or not the political and military solutions being practised or proposed currently will resolve either problem. ( )
