Global Organized Crime: The New Empire of Evil
The dimensions of global organized crime present a greater international security challenge than anything Western democracies had to cope with during the cold war. Worldwide alliances are being forged in every criminal field, from money laundering & currency counterfeiting to trafficking in drugs & nuclear materials. Global organized crime is the world's fastest growing business, with profits estimated at $1 trillion. According to contributor Louis Freeh, the director of the FBI, "The ravages of transnational crime are the greatest long-term threat to the security of the United States" & he warned that the very fabric of democratic society is at risk everywhere. Law enforcement & national security have become increasingly indistinguishable. But the laws have not kept up with the new breed of transnational criminals & their high-tech methodologies. The contributors have developed short & long-term strategies & mechanisms that will come to grips with these emerging national security concerns. Various task forces examined the critical parameters of each transnational crime problem & identified specific recommendations for policy, legislation, technology & organization.
