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.

"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."
