Reviews

"Farer has assembled a dazzling array of tough-minded experts. The result is a sober but terrifying account of the challenge to the community of nations from those whose chosen profession is crime on a global scale. Must reading for anyone who wants to get an intellectual grip on contemporary international criminal activity and what it means for our post-Cold War foreign policy."-William D. Rogers, Senior Partner, Arnold & Porter "This provocative and insightful volume contributes to the necessary debate over the policies and strategies for cooperation among states, and on the effective ways to combat such illegal activities. It constitutes a must-read reference for anyone interested in understanding, assessing and studying the subject."-Cesar Gaviria, Secretary General, Organization of American States "This is an important book that goes beyond the traditional drug trafficking focus and highlights the vulnerabilities of states to penetration by criminal organizations, the dynamics of illegal markets, and some of the strategies that can be used in combating phenomena that have become as pervasive as they are intractible. For both area specialists and students of transnational organized crime this excellent collection is essential reading."-Phil Williams, Professor and Director, Matthew B.
