"Editors Reichel and Albanese have compiled a volume of essays by experts in the field, which brings together an exemplary range of perspectives on these crimes and international efforts to cope with them....Intended as both a textbook and a reference work, this second edition continues to provide the best single starting point for an overview of the field. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections."
"In conclusion, the handbook represents a central contribution to the current literature on transnational crime and justice. The authors succeeded to produce a readable, well-structured, and up-to-date material that can be used as a textbook in courses focusing on transnational crime, organized crime, or international criminal justice issues. In addition, this comprehensive and rigorous work provides a valuable guide to transnational crime research and may serve as a reference point not only for scholars but also for practitioners seeking current information on transnational crime and possible ways to prevent or combat illicit activities conducted by organized criminal groups that extend their operations across national borders."
A good survey of the territory and current thinking in organised crime. My students have found it helpful and reference it often
