'Pirates & Smugglers' is a swashbuckling introduction to the highwaymen and women of the seas - from the cruel Sicilian
pirates who terrorised the Mediterranean more than 2,000 years ago to the well-organised and ruthless modern-day buccaneers who target supertankers in the South China Sea - and the loot that they plunder and smuggle.
The book examines the terror tactics of pirates through the ages, and also uncovers the secretive schemes of today's smugglers who traffic in an astonishing variety of goods, including alcohol, drugs, weapons, luxury cars, wildlife, and even people.
