Despite strenuous efforts from local, national, and international law enforcement, organized crime continues to thrive and prosper-even centuries-old crime outfits are surviving the global forces of mass migration and multinational business and finance. From traditional gangland enterprises such as narcotics, gambling, and prostitution, the world's mafias have moved into new sources of illegal income, including high-tech arms smuggling, money laundering, and identity fraud. Traditional Crime in the Modern World tracks these organizations-the Italian and Mexican mafias, Columbian drug cartels, Chinese triads, and others-across five continents as they adapt to change, and assesses their prospects in the short and long term. World events such as the collapse of the Soviet Union and the 9/11 terror attacks are discussed in the context of contributing to emerging markets for illicit goods and services, and to evolving partnerships among criminal entities. This timely volume: * Provides a comprehensive overview of how mafia-like structures function today. * Analyzes in depth national crime situations with global implications.
