Summary
This edited volume explores recent research and developments in the study of organized crime. It covers six key areas: drug-related issues; human trafficking and prostitution; sports and crime; procurement and corruption; and enforcement and prevention. The contributors provide timely research for understanding various aspects of organized crime, as well as the responses that have been developed worldwide to prevent and contain them. The contributions were presented at seminars of the Centre for Information and Research on Organized Crime (CIROC). It represents the third installment of such a volume, after Global Organized Crime: Trends and Developments (Siegel et al, 2003) and Organized Crime: Culture, Markets and Policies (Siegel and Nelen, 2008). It will be of interest to researchers in Criminology and Criminal Justice, particularly with an interest in organized crime and criminal networks, as well as related fields such as Comparative Law, and Political Science. This collection represents the most current thinking on entrenched problems of organized crime ... This book is an important contribution in developing new approaches to organized crime and its control. Jay S. Albanese, Ph. D., Professor and Chair, Criminal Justice Programs, Virginia Commonwealth University The book is very well organised and written and deals with a diversity of topics and approaches. Ernesto U. Savona, Director of Transcrime, Professor of Criminology, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan.--
