The scale and scope of organized transnational criminal activity has increased dramatically over the past quarter century, according to Berdal (director of studies, International Institute for Strategic Studies) and Serrano (politics, El Colegio de Mexico). They present 14 contributions that examine whether there is something fundamentally new about this activity and whether it poses a greater threat to the international political and economic system. The relationship of organized crime to the processes of economic globalization is explored in chapters that look at the growth of financial crime in the era of liberalization and cooperation among criminal organizations. Later chapters explore the role of international and regional organizations in fighting criminal activity. Finally regional studies from Europe, the Balkans, the Middle East, and Latin America are presented. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
