This volume examines the dynamics and control of organized and corporate crime in their national and international contexts. Global developments since World War II have combined to produce social, economic and political environments which have increased both the profitability and destructive impact of systematic illegal activity. The articles contained in this book challenge the simplistic assumption that crime is caused by bad individuals, acting alone or conspiring together, and that crime can be adequately dealt with by increasing conventional police activity. This assumption does not follow available empirical data.
