Daniel Sekulich is a reporter and documentary filmmaker whose last documentary film, Aftermath: The Remnants of War, has garnered nine awards at festivals worldwide. He has written about piracy for The Toronto Globe & Mail and is one of the leading authorities writing on this growing scourge. His new book, Terror on the Seas: True Tales of Modern Day Pirates, shows how violent these new pirates are and how their activities on one side of the globe can have far-reaching effects everywhere, whether it deals with the global economy or the global War on Terror.
