About the Author

Mitchel P. Roth is Professor of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Sam Houston State University, USA, and Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Criminology and Sociology.


"Global Organized Crime offers a comprehensive coverage on both the histories and present developments of criminal enterprises around the world. A gallant attempt at synthesizing complex research literature into accessible materials for instructional purposes. A great resource for instructors everywhere who aspire to elevate their students to higher levels of sophistication in their global awareness of the organized forces that are either parasitic or disruptive to the status quo economic and political systems."

Sheldon Zhang, Chair of School of Criminology and Justice Studies, University of Massachusetts Lowell, USA

"This book provides readers with a unique historical and international perspective. Mitchel Roth engages the reader from the very first page. This is, by far, the most comprehensive and well-researched scholarly work available on global organized crime."

Robert Worley, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice, Lamar University, USA

"Roth's book arguably represents the most comprehensive, wide-ranging and ambitious single-authored textbook to attempt to tell the story of organised crime across the globe and it should prove valuable to students and teachers in this field alike."

Xavier L'Hoiry, University of Sheffield, UK, Policing and Society
