Global Organized Crime and International Security
Published in 1999, this book focuses on organized crime as a worldwide phenomenon that has taken great advantage of enabling technology in banking, communications and transportation to build what is probably the first true 'virtual' corporation in the world.
It looks at organized crime as a threat to national and international security ironically stemming, in part, from the collapse of the Soviet empire that provided an already thriving, ruthless and well-organized system of graft, corruption and crime with a new lease of life and also unleashed it on to the world scene.
Cybercrime, Organized Crime, and Societal Responses: International Approaches
This timely book provides contributions on international, comparative crime phenomena: gangs, trafficking, fear of crime, and crime prevention.
It highlights contributions originally prepared for the XVII World Congress of Criminology and for the 2015 Cybercrime Conference in Oñati, Spain which have been selected, reviewed, and adapted for inclusion in this volume.
Intimate Violence: Interdisciplinary Perspectives
Examines the practical and theoretical issues and concerns in domestic violence from an international perspective. It includes contributions from researchers in a wide variety of associated fields. First published in 1992. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
