June 1, 2015 1 Comment
Cambridge University Press just published a new collected volume on maritime piracy. “Prosecuting Maritime Piracy: Domestic Solutions to International Crimes” (edited by Michael P. Scharf, Michael A. Newton and Milena Sterio) contains thirteen chapters. The first four chapters (by Sandra L. Hodgkinson, Ved P. Nanda, and Milena Sterio) focus on the definition of the crime of piracy and issues related to universal jurisdiction over the piracy offense. The next four chapters (by Laurie R. Blank, Mark V. Vlasic and Jeffrey Paul DeSousa, Frederick Lorenz and Laura Eshbach, and Milena Sterio) focus on the pursuit, arrest, and pre-trial treatment of suspected pirates. The next three chapters (by Frederic Lorenz and Kelly Paradis, Michael A. Newton, and Jon Bellish) focus on legal issues in domestic pirate trials. The last two chapters (by Eugene Kontorovich and Yvonne M. Dutton) discuss the sentencing and post-sentence treatment of convicted pirates. The Introduction and Conclusion were contributed by Michael P. Scharf.
