In this short clip, Time Magazine contributor Adam McCauley takes a look at the history of piracy in Asia from the 19th century pirating of Dutch and British ships to the piracy landscape of today. The clip notes that from 1995 to 2013, while most of the attention was focused on piracy in Africa and more specifically off the coast Somali, pirate gangs in Asia killed more than twice the amount of people than pirates in Africa.

Check out Adam McCauley’s piece, The World’s Most Dangerous Waters, for the full story.
