Transnational crime and justice will characterize the 21st century in same way that traditional street crimes dominated the 20th century. In the Handbook of Transnational Crime and Justice, Philip Reichel and Jay Albanese bring together top scholars from around the world to offer perspectives on the laws, crimes, and criminal justice responses to transnational crime. This concise, reader-friendly handbook is organized logically around four major themes: the problem of transnational crime; analysis of specific transnational crimes; approaches to its control; and regional geographical analyses. Each comprehensive chapter is designed to be explored as a stand-alone topic, making this handbook an important textbook and reference tool for students and practitioners alike.


•Reorganizes chapters into four major categories: The Problem of Transnational Crime, Transnational Crimes, Transnational Crime Control, and Regional Analysis.
•Offers new chapters on important emerging topics: the United Nations’ role in crime control and prevention; combating transnational crime under the rule of law; international corrections; the reality of international cooperation; weapons trafficking; trafficking in counterfeit goods; transnational sex crimes; transnational organized crime networks; stolen and banned goods; and counterfeiting.
•Presents expanded coverage of organized crime with a new chapter in the regional section on organized crime in Oceania and the addition of the Middle East to the chapter on Asia.
•Provides up-to-date data throughout the book to support the topical coverage.


•Covers all major transnational crimes and cooperative efforts to combat those crimes at all stages of the justice process such as the law, police, courts, and corrections.
•Includes original works written by recognized and respected international authors in their area of expertise.
•Discusses transnational organized crime by world regions, offering unique global geographical coverage.
•Includes a comprehensive index for quick access to key terms and names.

"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."
