There are today, in the 21st Century, more Pirates operating on the world’s oceans than at any other time in history. Tonight’s book “Pirates Aboard!” deals with recent cases of piracy. The author, whom I met a number of years ago at a Bardentreffen musical festival in Nuremburg, interviewed the victims of about 40 cases. These case histories are tonight's stories... also discussed will be preventive measures sailors can take and advises how they should deal with stress, aggression, and fear when faced with a piratical confrontation.
