Somalia: The New Barbary? is the first book to comprehensively study Somali piracy within the unique cultural, historical, political, and economic context from which the phenomenon arose in the twenty-first century.

Since 1997, piracy in the Horn of Africa has exploded.

In the first section, while using semi-structured interviews with government diplomats, members of international organizations and industry leaders, we examine the rationales given as to why the world community is reluctant to engage with onshore solutions – that is, state-building and development initiatives. Interviewees identified four factors: lack of credible national partner; competing priorities; corruption; and divisive internal Somali politics. Since 1997, piracy in the Horn of Africa has exploded. Existing explanations focus on state collapse or on the shifting relative price of labour in the region as causes of piracy.

Somali piracy is repeatedly associated with the historical specter of Barbary

Somalia: The New Barbary?: Piracy and Islam in the Horn of Africa. Somali piracy is repeatedly associated with the historical specter of Barbary. Indeed, piracy off the Horn of Africa has matched the spread of conflict and chaos that allow criminal elites to assume power. The world now fears Somalia has become too much of a safe haven for terrorists who wish to wreck havoc on the developed world.

Piracy, rarely mentioned in the media until the last few years, has seen ever-increasing headlines heralding ever-larger ships being seized with correspondingly ever-increasing ransoms. Murphy weaves a complex tapestry of the origins of piracy, which is by no means a new phenomenon in Somalia. During the 1950s, yachts were seized and held for ransom, and through the years, disputes over fishing rights have resulted in the seizure of foreign fishing boats for ransom. So what has created this sudden spike in piracy?

Somalia, the New Barbary? Piracy and Islam in the Horn of Africa by Martin N. Published: 13 December 2010.

Somalia: The New Barbary? Piracy and Islam in the Horn of Africa By: Martin N. Murphy London: Hurst & Company, 2010. The principal aim of the author is to inform policy makers in the West about the causes, nature and dynamics of piracy off the Somali coast, and to provide what he considers a more logically and cost effective way of dealing with the matter. Murphy’s book is divided into 28 chapters that attempt to cover Somali political history and culture, the relationship between piracy and state failure, Islam and Islamic movement, and many other topics.

Somali piracy has been linked repeatedly to the spectre of Barbary. Piracy off the Horn of Africa has certainly raged with the intensity of a perfect storm with the spread of conflict and disorder. The purpose of this book is to examine whether or not state failure is a useful and accurate explanation for Somali piracy and if violent Islamism could exploit what the pirates have achieved for their own ends. It reviews the history, motivation, organization, criminal methods and operational tactics of the Somali pirates from their first manifestations in the mid-1990s to the present. It attempts to show that their activities and their fortunes are linked to the rise and fall of political groups within Somalia. It asks why and how violent Islamist groups operate within Somalia and the degree to which they might exploit the maritime dimension in the future. Finally it reviews whether or not the political and military solutions being practised or proposed currently will resolve either problem.
