About this product
- DescriptionMore than simply a study of the mafia, Alfredo Schulte-Bockholt's work argues that collaboration between political science and crimilogy is critical to understanding the real nature of organized crime and its power. Schulte-Bockholt looks at specific case studies from Asia, Latin America, and Europe as he develops a theoretical discussion-drawing on the thought of Max Horkheimer, Theodor Ador, and Antonio Gramsci-of the intimate connections between criminal groups and elite structures. Ranging from an historical discussion of the world drug ecomy to an examination of the evolution of organized crime in the former Soviet Union, the book extends into a consideration of the possible future development of organized crime in the age of advanced globalization.
