Furthermore, the book examines the challenges the various global flows represent for the nature of governance, state sovereignty, and crime control. Presenting an expert and interdisciplinary summary of complex debates, this book addresses a variety of highly topical issues.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Globalisation and Crime is a tour de force in exploring the contradictions and complexities of crime and crime control in a globalised world. From human trafficking and terrorism to global surveillance and security, Katja Aas has done a remarkable job in establishing the theoretical and conceptual parameters of this emergent field of criminological study. Accessible, comprehensive and replete with pertinent illustrations, this text sets new standards for comparative and transnational criminology
Professor John Muncie,
Open University

A rich and timely book, Globalization and Crime explains various complex concepts and developments in understandable terms and in a concise manner without being simplistic at any point. Examples are not merely derived from English-speaking countries, but cover a truly global terrain. General concepts, such as globalization, are all well defined, the glossary is very helpful and ‘further reading’ sections are simply superb. One of those books one wishes to have written oneself
Professor René van Swaaningen,
Erasmus University Rotterdam

As society becomes increasingly connected through technology and communication,

further research is necessary in order to understand better both the advantages

and challenges globalization poses to society, crime and law enforcement,

for which this book effectively achieves. The chapters are structured logically

and build upon previous ones while constantly referencing each other. The content is both stimulating and thought provoking, forcing the reader to think critically and carefully analyse the material provided. The readability of this book makes it accessible to many audiences in the social sciences. With these points in mind, this book makes a strong contribution to the field and lays a solid

framework for future research and books on this topic
