A GOOD LOOK AT GLOBAL ORGANIZED CRIME.11 Feb 2001
- Published on Amazon.com
This book for me atleast is a fantastic look at the new collaberation of organized crime on an international level.She starts her investigation with the sicilian clans and their efforts in spearheading the frightening cooperation of a new global mafia.when i started reading this book i couldnt put it down i read it within 10 days claire sterling has taught me things about the russain mafia i could never have known and she has done wonders for my investigations into organized crime. All the major organized crime figures and cans are here with knowledge of what their buisness interests.are in the new internatiional conglomerate that has now become organized crime.also claire tells us in great detail of who is doing what and what their importance is in the brotherhood of inernational organized crime.The pax mafia is no longer mere speculation and with the demise of ussr russia has become a massive breeding ground and a massive target for all the crime organizations throughout the globe and this book gives you a frightening account of what the relationships of the international mafias are to each of the other.A fantastic read and one which opens your eyes to the new world order of organized crime.
