Handbook of Transnational Crime and Justice / Edition 1

"Crime is everywhere." Crime occurs in every country, in both hemispheres, often acting as if state borders did not exist. The Handbook of Transnational Crime and Justice is a book about just that-crime IS everywhere. This volume discusses how particular criminal acts are occurring everywhere in the world and also recognizes that it is both possible and necessary to combat such crime.

In this Handbook, editor Philip Reichel has brought together renowned scholars from around the world to offer various perspectives providing global coverage of the increasingly transnational nature of crime and the attempts to provide cooperative cross-national responses. This volume not only has a comprehensive introduction to the topic of transnational crime but also provides specific examples such as international terrorism, drug trafficking, and money laundering to illustrate this ever expanding phenomenon. The Handbook also examines cross-national and international efforts by police, courts, international agencies, and correctional authorities to deal with transnational crime. Part IV concludes the book by addressing emerging issues in transnational crime and justice with particular attention given to transnational organized crime in all regions of the world.
