Major Work - Organized Crime: 4-Volume set

In an expanding field of research, Organized Crime arrives at a time when no other reference collections on this scale are available.

Since the events of 11 September 2001, the relationship between organized crime and terrorism, and the ability of organized crime groups to operate transnationally and expand to new territories, has gained a new significance.

This new set:

• includes articles on the Russian mafia, the Japanese Yakuza, and the Triads in Hong Kong, China, and the USA.

• provides scholars, and other researchers, with easy access to the key items of scholarly literature material that is otherwise inaccessible or scattered throughout a variety of specialist journals and books.

• gathers materials into one easy-to-use set.

This new title in the Routledge Critical Concepts in Criminology series is edited by Federico Varese, a leading scholar in the field at Oxford University, UK, and is also editor of leading journal Global Crime.
