Abstract

The comparative temporal perspective explored in this paper, which covers the latter part of two centuries, the late eighteenth and the late twentieth centuries, lends explanatory power to the treatment of Iranun maritime raiding, on the one hand, and on the other, modern day crime on the high seas in Southeast Asia, with particular reference to the China connection, growing commodity flows and the fluctuations of the global economy.

The paper argues that between 1768 to 1800 and 1968 to 2000, Iranun maritime raiding and slaving and space-age piracy and criminally related matters on the high seas of Southeast Asia, were as much forces for engagement with world commerce and economic growth then as globalization is a force for maritime crime in Southeast Asia now.
