- DescriptionThe Oxford Handbook of Organized Crime provides an informed, authoritative, and comprehensive overview of current kwledge about the nature and effects of the principal forms of organized crime, as well as the type and effectiveness of efforts to prevent and control them.

While there are a number of organized crime texts available, ne delivers a systematic, high-quality and truly global approach to the topic as is available in The Oxford Handbook of Organized Crime. Its insights illuminate both traditional areas of study in the field and pathways for developing cutting-edge research questions.
