'Following the money that funds terror and motivates organised crime is not a new strategy. However, much of what has been done has not had significant results - at least measured in traditional law enforcement terms. We need to learn from those systems that have better disrupted the criminal pipe line and increasingly think of new strategies and devices. This excellent book, edited by two leading scholars in criminal justice, provides in its treasury of experience if not all the answers - certainly some. Anyone concerned with taking the profit out of crime or pursuing terrorists more effectively will not be disappointed.'Barry Rider, University of Cambridge, UK
About the Author
Colin King is Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Sussex. He is also Academic Fellow at the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple. Prior to joining Sussex, Colin lectured at the Universities of Manchester and Leeds, and was Director of the University of Leeds Innocence Project. He completed his PhD at the University of Limerick, Ireland in 2010. Clive Walker is Professor of Criminal Justice Studies at the School of Law, University of Leeds, where he has served as the Director of the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies (1987-2000) and as Head of School (2000-2005, 2010). He has written extensively on criminal justice issues with a special focus on terrorism issues and also miscarriages of justice, with many publications not only in the UK but also in several other jurisdictions, especially the USA, where he has been a visiting professor at George Washington and Stanford Universities. In 2003, he was a special adviser to the UK Parliamentary select committee which scrutinised what became the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, from which experience he published The Civil Contingencies Act 2004: Risk, Resilience and the Law in the United Kingdom (Oxford University Press, 2006). He has also given evidence to many other Parliamentary and official inquiries, not only in the UK but also in Australia, Canada, and the US. His latest book on terrorism is a comprehensive study of Terrorism and the Law (Oxford University Press, 2011) and was supported by an AHRC fellowship. His standing in the field of terrorism laws has resulted in his appointment by the Home Office as a special adviser.
