  2. Advanced Introduction to Organised Crime

    Advanced Introduction to Organised Crime

    Leslie Holmes
    Organised crime has become a major problem globally. Its negative impact on economies, societies, politics, human rights and security is profound: fraud, money laundering, drug, arms and human trafficking, and collusion with both law enforcement and terrorists, for example, are all significant issues. Yet specialists disagree not only on the scale and nature of organised crime, but even on its definition. This Advanced Introduction to Organised Crime explores these disagreements, examines the nature and causes of contemporary organised crime, and offers constructive suggestions on how to counter it.

    A Theory of Organizing

    Barbara Czarniawska
    This new edition of ‘A Theory of Organizing’ continues to promote a processual view of organizing, and presents a theory developed by combining multiple field studies with recent theoretical insights.

Helped by information technologies, global ideas travel across the world – in physical space and in cyberspace, over national, sectorial and organizational borders, within and outside organizations – and are then translated into local practices.
