More About This Title Gangland Today


What’s happening in organized crime today? Has the FBI managed to squash New York’s “Five Families,” or has the Mafia simply forged a new and even more deadly alliance with Russian criminals? What’s happened to the Triads since the Chinese government took back Hong Kong? In Gangland Today, James Morton answers all these questions and many more. From Europe to South America, the Mob to the Middle East, Morton charts the effects of a changing world on everything from prostitution to people smuggling, identity theft to old-fashioned robbery. He looks at the ways organized gangs are making increasing use of technology, and shows that wherever criminal gangs are being stopped, even deadlier versions are growing in their place.
