about this item

In the tumult of globalization and cyberspace, organized crime continues to defy definition. According to research and theory, organized crime groups come in all shapes and sizes and it is clear that one specific structure does not fit all. Looking beyond some of the outdated interpretations, this book offers a truly global approach to organized crime and the multitude of forces that shape it in the 21st Century.

As well as discussing definitions of and the historical roots of organized crime, this book discusses various forms of organized crime around the world in the US, Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean, Russia and Europe, Asia and Africa. It discusses pressing contemporary issues in organized crime such and terrorism and cybercrime and examines its investigation and prevention.

New additions to the new edition include coverage of the rise of the 'Ndrangheta in Italy; the impact of drug legalization on organized crime and the problem of methamphetamine; organ trading, money laundering and animal poaching; changes in gang traditions and gangland penitentiaries; the decentralization of Mexican cartels, the rise of opium production in Myanmar, the drug war in Africa, the rise of ISIS and the emergence of the Silk Road and the Dark Net.

This book is essential reading for students and researchers engaged in global and transnational organized crime.
