About the Author

J. C. Sharman is Sir Patrick Sheehy Professor of International Relations at the University of Cambridge. He is the author of The Despot's Guide to Wealth Management: On the International Campaign against Grand Corruption, The Money Laundry: Regulating Criminal Finance in the Global Economy, and Havens in a Storm: The Struggle for Global Tax Regulation, all from Cornell, and coauthor most recently of International Order in Diversity: War, Trade and Rule in the Indian Ocean.


"Well documented, well structured and with plenty of interesting examples, The Money Laundry takes readers through the complexity of the post-9/11 global AML policy drive... Sharman not only provides a much needed constructive critique of anti-money laundering (AML) policy but shows how we can build on its few successful aspects."-Loretta Napoleoni, International Affairs (July 2012) "In the context of work on the contemporary illicit, J.C. Sharman's book, The Money Laundry: Regulating Criminal Finance in the Global Economy, stands as a major contribution. Sharman sets out to look at the rapid and virtually unchallenged global diffusion of anti-money laundering (AML) policy and standards through the work of international organizations... The book is written with an insider's insight, coupled with an academic detachment... It will be a shame if his work does not attract a wide audience."-Tim Hall, Economic Geography (December 2012) "In The Money Laundry, J. C. Sharman burrows deeply into the effort to combat money laundering. Through a combination of exhaustive research, interviews, and the groundbreaking approach of direct testing, Sharman demonstrations the comprehensive and dysfunctional nature of the anti-money laundering (AML) regime. This well-written book will be of interest for anyone working on global governance or global political economy. The nuggets of detail, like the perversity of attacking Nauru's nonexistent financial sector and the incompatibility of spreadsheet software for AML purposes, are gold."-Daniel W. Drezner, the Fletcher School of International Politics, Tufts University, author of All Politics is Global: Explaining International Regulatory Regimes "J. C. Sharman's The Money Laundry should be required reading for those interested in the politics of global governance. The book shows us the central importance of the anti-money laundering (AML) regime as a site of global power. Sharman has done some exceptional primary research, including using some very innovative (even audacious) methods of testing the AML system. This book is an engaging read, beautifully written in a way that is accessible to a wide audience."-Jacqueline Best, University of Ottawa, author of The Limits of Transparency "The Money Laundry is an important work of extraordinary compass that turns an ultra-skeptical, informed lens upon the global anti-laundering movement. It poses some fundamental questions for the rationality of current approaches to serious crime control, both in the developed and, especially, the developing world."-Michael Levi, Cardiff University, author of The Phantom Capitalists
