Overview

Smuggling used to be a family business. Today it is big business. Illicit Trafficking: A Reference Handbook offers a thorough introduction to the problems of illegal trafficking that have emerged from and been intensified by globalization. This title provides an examination of how criminal enterprises have exploited opportunities to enrich themselves and broadened their involvement in many areas of illegal trafficking while compromising or evading legal authorities.

The coverage includes a brief history of illicit trafficking, analyzes current problems, and examines local and global containment policies such as Presidential Decision Directive 42. It also explores key international agreements on money laundering, bank secrecy laws, extradition treaties, and technologies that have exploited legitimate business opportunities to enrich their profits while compromising or evading legal authorities.

    The Globalization of Crime

    In Illicit Trafficking, Joe Serio, Jess Maghan, and Robert Kelly have produced a well-researched book on the ever increasing problem of transnational crime. The authors do a more than credible job of addressing the various forms of international crime: drug trafficking, weapons smuggling, money laundering, trafficking in humans, the illicit trade in precious stones, art, and cultural objects, and the commercialization of human body parts. In addition, they provide a comprehensive list of resources for further research. This book would be an excellent text for an advanced course dealing with the subject of transnational crime. Serio, et al., are to be commended for making this contribution to criminal justice literature.
