Overview

In this illuminating history that spans past campaigns against piracy and slavery to contemporary campaigns against drug trafficking and transnational terrorism, Peter Andreas and Ethan Nadelmann explain how and why prohibitions and policing practices increasingly extend across borders. The internationalization of crime control is too often described as simply a natural and predictable response to the growth of transnational crime in an age of globalization. Andreas and Nadelmann challenge this conventional view as at best incomplete and at worst misleading. The internationalization of policing, they demonstrate, primarily reflects ambitious efforts by generations of western powers to export their own definitions of "crime," not just for political and economic gain but also in an attempt to promote their own morals to other parts of the world.

A thought-provoking analysis of the historical expansion and recent dramatic acceleration of international crime control, Policing the Globe provides a much-needed bridge between criminal justice and international relations on a topic of crucial public importance.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[A] pioneering look at the internationalization of twentieth-century policing...a needed corrective to sensationalistic reports on the global illicit sphere."--Qualitative Sociology

"This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the policing of transnational crime--the dark side of globalization."--George Soros, Founder and Chairman, Open Society Institute

"This is the book we have been waiting for since 9/11--a historically rich, thematically cogent, politically nuanced, up-to-date analysis of the international politics of policing. Andreas and Nadelmann provide an authoritative account with extraordinary insights" -- Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University

"With intelligence, deep learning, and clarity of exposition, Andreas and Nadelmann critically assess international cooperation against cross-border crime. This book sets a new standard in our understanding of international policing as it addresses some of the central worries of our time." -- Jorge I. Dominguez, Clarence Dillon Professor of International Affairs, Harvard University

"Policing the Globe by Peter Andreas and Ethan Nadelmann is an absolutely first-rate examination of a subject as vastly important to international relations as it is to criminal law. Much of the future of both fields is described thoroughly and carefully in this always-readable volume. The handling is remarkably balanced, comprehensive, rich, and complex, yet entirely lucid. A subject that cannot continue to be ignored has received the treatment it deserves." -- Philip Heymann, James Barr Ames Professor of Law, Harvard University

"Every serious student of international organized crime in particular and international crime control in general should make the reading of Policing the Globe by Peter Andreas and Ethan Nadelmann a priority."--Michael Woodiwiss, International Criminal Justice Review

"As global criminal networks--terrorists, money launderers, traffickers in drugs, arms, and people--take advantage of globalization just as corporate and non-governmental networks do, internationalizing criminal justice becomes indispensable. Policing the Globe is an important and interesting read not only for international relations scholars and criminologists, but also for a wider public." -- Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University
