During the 16th and 17th centuries there was frequent European piracy against Mughal Indian vessels, especially those en route to Mecca for hajj. As far as its modern perspective is concerned seaborne piracy against transport vessels remains a significant issue (which estimated worldwide losses of US $ 13 to $ 16 billion per year), particularly in the matters between the Pacific and Indian Ocean, off the Somali Coast and also in Strait of Malacca and Singapore.
The present book carries out detail description about the sea pirates from ancient period to till date. You will find a comprehensive treatment about the concerned facts. The language and the way of expression have been particularly taken into account.
