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.
