Review quote

The book offers an exciting introduction for students and academics who wish to build on knowledge on transnational crime and criminal justice, in a globalized world. It conveys difficult concepts in a clear and simple way, while founding the discussion on theoretical approaches. It is very accessible as it uses tables, pictures and balances theory, definitions and examples of case studies. -- Ermioni Xanthopoulou Overall, this is a first-class contribution to the literature and should be of interest to students of policing, criminology and criminal justice, as well as those in law, international security and international relations. It is eminently accessible, wide-ranging, engaging and well organised. This enables it to achieve its key objective, namely to provide a `friendly platform' from which students, academics and practitioners can approach the topic without fear of being intimidated by academic jargon and complexity. -- Geoffrey Coliandris The scholarship deployed in this book is precise, well researched and the writing style is excellent. In my opinion this text provides a notable contribution to teaching in this area and is also of relevance to scholars and policy makers operating in the policing and criminal Justice fields. -- Brian Payne For the current generation of students of crime and criminal justice the issues addressed in this book are quite certain to become ever more important from year-to-year. The authors succeed impressively in imposing a coherent organizational scheme on the world of transnational crime and criminal justice and in their discussion of multi-faceted and endlessly complex issues in an accessible and engaging way. The growing number of criminology and criminal justice scholars focusing on one or more dimensions of transnational crime and criminal justice will also find much of value in this book. It richly merits widespread classroom adoptions as well as acquisition for academic and professional libraries. -- David O. Friedrichs
