The book offers a collection of original and previously published articles that critically examine transnational crime from a global perspective. Chapters are organized into seven sections that provide a framework for understanding the dynamics of transnational crime and multinational crime control responses. Part One addresses globalization effects, national security issues, definitions, concepts, models, and criminal relationships related to transnational criminal actors and organizations. Part Two explores the characteristics and issues surrounding global organized crime and drug trafficking. The chapters in Part Three provide contemporary explanations, as well as address the ongoing debate, about global terrorism. Chapters in Part Four discuss and analyze illicit goods trafficking, smuggling, and technology crime. In Parts Five and Six chapters examine efforts by international and national organizations, laws, police, and courts to prevent and control transnational crime and terrorism. In Part Seven, the two chapters review available resources used in the study of international criminal justice topics. The book concludes with a discussion of the future prospects for transnational crime. A world map is included as an appendix.Bloss, William P. is the author of 'Harf-Bloss Cpsw', published 2006 under ISBN 9780697747006 and ISBN 069774700X.
