Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195397827, Paperback)

Transnational crime is to the early twenty-first century what city gangs and Al Capone were to the early twentieth century. In Transnational Crime and the 21st Century: Criminal Enterprise, Corruption, and Opportunity, noted criminologist Jay S. Albanese uses case studies, interviews, and the most up-to-date research to explore the connections between transnational crime and organized crime. A concise and affordable supplement for courses in comparative, international, and organized crime, this provocative text offers students a solid basis for understanding the nature of transnational crime.

FEATURES
* Uses clear, straightforward language, making the text accessible to students of all levels
* Categorizes crimes by type (rather than by topic) in order to help students better grasp the interrelationships between transnational and organized crime
* Examines the nine most serious forms of transnational crime: drug trafficking, stolen property, counterfeiting, human trafficking, fraud and cybercrime, commercialized sex, extortion and racketeering, money laundering, and corruption
* Proposes concrete solutions for preventing organized crime syndicates and networks
* Takes a systematic approach to risk assessment, delving into the factors that generate illicit markets and allow criminals to be successful
