Crime in a shrinking world

0 642 24063 0


The rapid mobility of people, money, information, ideas and commodities in the world today has provided new opportunities for crime, and new challenges for law enforcement agencies. Grabosky reviews some of the major themes of crime and crime control in today's small world. He observes that linkages between events and institutions overseas and at home are inevitable, and will proliferate. As this is likely only to increase, he discusses policy implications for crime control in a global village.
