Abstract or Introduction
An essay about the legal views on piracy through the history of law, starting with Ancient Greece. Written with regard of the takes of legal scholars of several centuries and special consideration of the US invasion against the so called Barbary States in Northern Africa. Closing with the reason for why the question of how to assess acts of piracy could become more important in these times.
