Transnational organised crime.
Description: Transnational organized crime (TOC) has emerged as a major idea in the conceptual field of global governance. Studies of TOC intersect with disparate criminological issues inhabiting apparently different domains: comparative criminal justice, migration studies, transnational policing and the political sociology of crime, to name just a few. The four-volume structure of this major work enables coverage of the historic development of its conceptualization, critical definitional and socio-political issues, empirical case studies and realist formulations of the problem area as well as theoretical, normative debates, alternative conceptual formulations and policy choices. Each volume contains an introduction illustrating and contextualizing the main themes in each section.
Contents: Volume One: Definitions and Theories Volume Two: Origins, Resources, Organization Volume Three: Organized Crime and the Penetration of Markets Volume Four: Organized Crime and Popular Culture, States and Terrorism
