And second, I certainly did not anticipate such a carefully crafted prose from someone of his inexperience.
First, because Bahadur is so young though I think only someone young and naive would have had the guts to put themselves in this position in the first place , I did not expect it to be such a credible journalistic undertaking. My neighbor died, but didn't it look awesome? Though I think journalism school might have given him some better organizing skills in his writing. Jay brings out some very poignant facts in his book concerning the pirates. When the author is asked by the pirates, what Americans think of pirates, he tells them eyepatches. He gets increasingly interested in studying an organization of Somali pirates. This created a downward spiral for the people, and after the tsunami piracy started to heat up because there was no other source of income.
Granted, he doesn't want to be Daniel Pearl, but neither is he really able to see the opportunity. The first three points simply expand the global prison industrial complex--they are punitive measures--not measures that actually address root causes of why piracy is seen as a viable financial solution. I think some of their info is credible, other not so much. But though he may not have thought of this himself, it seemed to me that his life resembled theirs in some way, the main difference being that his activities were legal, while theirs were illegal. It's not a bad book by any means, but given how fascinating its subject matter is, I found myself wishing over and over that the author was more adept at exploring this world and connecting with its various actors. You are watching the movie The Pirates of Somalia After an inspiring chance encounter with his idol, rookie journalist Jay Bahadur uproots his life and moves to Somalia looking for the story of a lifetime.
He interviewed pirates and the leaders of pirate gangs as well as government officials who were making an effort to end piracy. I did like his breakdown of the cost of a pirate mission where Bahadur debunks the myth that a Somali teenager can do a hijacking and become an overnight millionaire. Nomads were relocated to coasts and encouraged to start fishing enterprises, which they did, but then the 2004 tsunami struck and wiped out 75% of the boats and there was not capital left to repair and replace them. The Pirates of Somalia 2011 is an interesting and enjoyable look at modern piracy in the Horn of Africa. They split some of it up between everyone involved and then 10 to 30 percent of it goes to charity. There is a function for every behavior.
Despite its ostensible mission to shed some life on Somali culture and the precarious situation of its democracy, the movie is really all about a white guy trying to earn cultural currency in an era when what he represents is on an ever-more hurried wane. One big takeaway is the effect of khat a local drug on all of this. A few months fresh out of college, trying to break into journalism, he decides what better way to do that than to live in the heart of 'pirateville' - Puntland, and interview the headline making Somali pirates. So this is the fourth book on Somali pirates that I have read and i have to say that this was one of the better ones. Indeed, under circumstances that would prompt a fairly rapid and instinctual fleeing response from most people, Bahadur, seemingly unfazed, assumes a seat on the dirin and enjoys a relaxed day of Khat the local drug of choice and tea consumption with internationally identified cri My Review: In The Pirates of Somalia Jay Bahadur talks about his investigative mission into the heart of the Somali pirate network as if he were recounting a casual family vacation to a welcoming foreign countryside. Who knew that Johnny Depp and Captain Hook could get it so wrong? The only lingering question I have is, how did he kick his khat habit he picked up while in Somalia? He interviewed pirates and the leaders of pirate gangs as well as government officials who were making an effort to end piracy. When the author is asked by the pirates, what Americans think of pirates, he tells them eyepatches.
Some of the other gaping holes are the protagonist associating with a young woman who is an informant, but he never really realizes it; as soon as rifles are involved, people become smart and have superior insight into the situation, but there the story stops; and when things get really hot and worthy of investigative journalism, it is pointed out that the situation is too dangerous, and the protagonist should get back to Canada. There is no hope for a journalistic groundbreaker of the present or future: it is only the recent past that contains viable models. Slower than I thought it would be but, since I thought it had a good plot, I stuck it out and am glad I did. I do not think that deploying more navy ships to the Gulf of Aden will eradicate the piracy problem. Naval battle fleets can do their part to boost the 'cost' side of piracy, but without the alternate 'benefit' of meaningful occupations on land, no permanent resolution is possible.
Likewise, Bahadur is disinterested in Somalia beyond its pirate gangs. A look at the international backdrop for how piracy thrives, and local stories about where it came from. But, like the time I got asked if I had a boyfriend on by Marc Summers, host of Nickelodeon's first real children's game show also in 1986 I always feel quite hollow if and when I get the chance to talk about Black Hawk Down. The author chewed a bunch of khat to really get a perspective on this too, which is solid gonzo journalism. He befriended some top pirates, didn't chicken out when people got nasty, and chewed khat with everyone. Even so, a bit more analysis of the incentives, local context and the organization structure would have been appreciated. Because of this, as much as I admire Bahadur's guts and determination in traveling to Puntland to meet Somalian pirates, his book ends up as a missed opportunity, by and large.

He and my father both have monuments erected in their names in Long Valley, so that's cool, I guess.

However, it is not unlikely that Japan and Korea are illegally fishing there and have bully-boy tactics.
The fact that these pirates and I'm not apologizing for their atrocious behavior have ventured into foreign territory speaks volumes about the plight of the people in Somalia right now as they face continual war over their failed state and a devastating drought. He forsook writing dull reports and going to journalism school and instead, risked his life in a mad adventure designed to propel him into the ranks of the established journalists. I encourage anyone reading this to do so as well. Unfortunately, a monotone narrator made for a dull audiobook experience but the content was fascinating. It's not a bad book by any means, but given how fascinating its subject matter is, I found myself wishing over and over that the author was more adept at exploring this world and connecting with its various actors. ويقدم الكتاب مجموعة من الأسباب التي أدت لظاهرة القرصنة ومنها انتهاك سفن الصيد للسواحل الصومالية والجشع في الصيد الجائر، و عدم وجود القوانين العالمية المحددة للتعامل مع القراصنة وخصوصا في غياب السلطة القوية والموحدة في الصومال، والأهم من استعداد المجتمع الدو يتناول الكتاب تفاصيل لزيارة صحفي أمريكي للبحث عن أسرار قرصنة السفن في سواحل الصومال وخليج عدن.
