Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the policing of transnational crime--the dark side of globalization."--George Soros, Founder and Chairman, Open Society Institute

"This is the book we have been waiting for since 9/11--a historically rich, thematically cogent, politically nuanced, up-to-date analysis of the international politics of policing. Andreas and Nadelmann provide an authoritative account with extraordinary insights"--Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University

"With intelligence, deep learning, and clarity of exposition, Andreas and Nadelmann critically assess international cooperation against cross-border crime. This book sets a new standard in our understanding of international policing as it addresses some of the central worries of our time."--Jorge I. Dominguez, Clarence Dillon Professor of International Affairs, Harvard University

"Policing the Globe by Peter Andreas and Ethan Nadelmann is an absolutely first-rate examination of a subject as vastly important to international relations as it is to criminal law. Much of the future of both fields is described thoroughly and carefully in this always-readable volume. The handling is remarkably balanced, comprehensive, rich, and complex, yet entirely lucid. A subject that cannot continue to be ignored has received the treatment it deserves."-- Philip Heymann, James Barr Ames Professor of Law, Harvard University

"Every serious student of international organized crime in particular and international crime control in general should make the reading of Policing the Globe by Peter Andreas and Ethan Nadelmann a priority."--Michael Woodiwiss, International Criminal Justice Review

"As global criminal networks--terrorists, money launderers, traffickers in drugs, arms, and people--take advantage of globalization just as corporate and non-governmental networks do, internationalizing criminal justice becomes indispensable. Policing the Globe is an important and interesting read not only for international relations scholars and criminologists, but also for a wider public." --Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University

This is a comprehensive overview of international policing using a sophisticated and synthetic theoretical approach. However, the theory largely takes a backseat to the empirical narrative. There is a slight civil libertarian bias, especially with respect to the war on drugs. Finally, some of their concepts are fuzzy, such as "entrepreneur" which seems to have several meanings throughout the book. Overall, a very good book. A must read for anyone interested in this topic.

I'll be honest, this book is not something you'll want to read after a couple glasses of wine. It's a serious book that unveils the scary side of globalization. My professor Rosco Williamson did a great job breaking this book down for me, but without his help in reading this book I don't think my intellect would have been sufficient enough to truly digest ALL of the information in this book. That being said, now that I am actually interested in topics like 9/11, interpol, and just globalization in general, I'm glad I still have this book on hand. This book is great for any student in poli-sci or international studies/relations. GET IT AND READ IT!!!!! Don't be intimidated at the jargon, it gets very interesting I PROMISE! Oh, and if I recall correctly, the book arrived from this seller with no problems and was in great condition. The packaging job shows the seller really puts in the time and effort. I'll definitely be ordering again from them.
