Pirate Alley


In times like these, we should talk of pirates.

Or at least you should listen to the new Between the Covers podcast with Rear Admiral Terry McKnight, co-author of Pirate Alley: Commanding Task Force 151 Off Somalia. We discuss the scope of piracy in the 21st century, how Somali pirates operate, why the United States has a stake in their defeat, and whether our popular culture is wrong to romanticize pirates.
