Fresh from Amsterdam University Press, Piracy in World History, edited by LNUC Concurrences members Stefan Amirell and Hans Hägerdal together with affiliated member Bruce Buchan, Griffith University, is now available!

Piracy in World History highlights the relevance of European and non-European understandings of piracy to the development of global maritime security and freedom of navigation.
