Synopsis

Understanding Organized Crime in Global Perspective A Reader by Patrick J. Ryan

Long encouraged by the International Association for the Study of Organized Crime, the current research on this broad and intriguing topic is systematically brought together in this exemplary reader. Understanding Organized Crime presents a rich collection of articles by outstanding researchers in the field who examine empirical research examples, salient issues and their explication, and provide a theoretical foundation to serve as a guide into further explorations. Skilfully edited, this accessible and timely volume focuses on areas and trends such as: the nature of organized crime; theoretical perspectives; organized crime in Russia, Eastern Europe and Hong Kong, with predictions for the next century; the diversity of activities and structures; and how the law enforcement community responds to organized crime.

Reviews

'A collection of well-researched articles on the structure and working of criminal organizations around the world.... There are interesting insights on how organized crime infiltrated the bank sector and financial institutions.... This is an excellent source of information for those with an interest in this subject. And an excellent read even for those who have not studied organised crime extensively. For them, this book could be a starting point''
