Somali Piracy Yearbook For 2008
Somali pirates set new records in 2008 in numbers of ships taken, in tonnages captured, and in ransoms paid. Merging and refining data from news reports and anti-piracy bureaus, this comprehensive yearbook collects every incident for every ship reported in 2008 whether off the Somali coast or in the Gulf of Aden; it composites the fullest description of each incident; it records all ransom data (and rumors); it describes ships' cargo and crew manning wherever possible; and it presents comprehensive lists and chronologies. Useful appendices include UN resolutions, press releases, and a press conference transcript with the regional U.S. commander.
