Product Description

Crime patterns in Europe are changing rapidly, keeping pace with the rapid expansion in trade and industry and the mobility of goods and people. The smuggling of drugs and other commodities is no longer confined to the shores of the European Union, but extend from Petersburg to the Bosporus. The same applies with the crime-moneys derived from this criminal trade.

This book deals with the most recent topics concerning the dynamics of this cross-border crime: smuggling, economic crime and underground banking in Western and Eastern Europe, against which the European Union designs new legal measures to stem this tide. The contributions are written by Europe`s leading experts in this field.
