Reviews

Tom Obokata has written the most useful and comprehensive book that sheds light upon the complex relationship between organised crime and international law. As both crime and law become evermore 'transnational' it is essential that concerned police officials, lawyers and judges as well as academics have such well researched in-depth assistance which is what this excellent work provides. Written in a very readable and lucid style it should form part of every international lawyer's library H. E Judge Howard Morrison, ICTY ... a welcome addition in a research field which has seen significant developments in the last years, but a relatively low number of scholarly works. ... a thorough analysis of the relationship between organized crime and international criminal law Francesco Calderoni The European Journal of Criminal Policy and Research April 2011
