Abstract:

Organized crime is a global phenomenon. From Sicily came the Mafia; Japan spawned and then exported the Yakuza, as China did its Triads, and post-Soviet Russia saw the birth and rapid escalation of its very own Mafiya. These and other criminal fraternities differ from common criminal gangs in that they operate much like legitimate business corporations. They all have a definite hierarchical structure, with bosses, under-bosses, and workers. They are highly efficient and massively profitable. They are also deadly and potentially ruinous to the world's economy. There was a time when these various criminal fraternities were solely a problem for the country that created them. Today, however, organized crime, like its legitimate business counterpart, has gone international, and North America, Europe, Australia, and Southeast Asia are now hosts to all of them. Organized Crime introduces readers to six of the most powerful and deadly criminal fraternities, their origins and history, their global spread, and the measures taken to counter their criminal activities.
