Organised Crime highlights some of the main issues currently being discussed within the international academic debate on organised crime:
- What constitutes organised crime?
- How does organised crime work as a normative system, as a market and as an economic activity?
- How organised is organised crime?
- How international is it?
- How is organised crime regulated and controlled and what are the bases for these regulatory and controlling strategies?
The book provides an up-to-date presentation of organised crime from a criminological and sociological perspective. It contributes to the study of both empirical research and theoretical perspectives on organised crime.
