"Editors Reichel and Albanese have compiled a volume of essays by
experts in the field, which brings together an exemplary range of
perspectives on these crimes and international efforts to cope with
them....Intended as both a textbook and a reference work, this
second edition continues to provide the best single starting point
for an overview of the field. Summing Up: Highly
recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional
collections." -- D. McIntosh * CHOICE *
"In conclusion, the handbook represents a central contribution to the current literature on transnational crime and justice. The authors succeeded to produce a readable, well-structured, and up-to-date material that can be used as a textbook in courses focusing on transnational crime, organized crime, or international criminal justice issues. In addition, this comprehensive and rigorous work provides a valuable guide to transnational crime research and may serve as a reference point not only for scholars but also for practitioners seeking current information on transnational crime and possible ways to prevent or combat illicit activities conducted by organized criminal groups that extend their operations across national borders." -- International Criminal Justice Review (2014).
