Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this well-researched and highly informative work, Mandel succeeds in effectively outlining the security impacts of international crime that persist in an anarchic yet interdependent system of sovereign states, in which local disruptions have ramifications for regional and even global stability . . . Highly recommended."—M. O'Gara, CHOICE


"Dark Logic is an urgent read about the threat to peace that often doesn't get enough attention."—Midwest Book Review


"Dr. Mandel's works are usually ahead of their time, and this is no exception. He was the first to identify 'transnational, non-state actors' as the 'future' most pressing threats to the US. In Dark Logic he correctly advances the logic that criminal cartels—not just terrorist organizations—are a threat to the US, the West, and international order."—BG (RET) Russell D. Howard


"This book provides a highly compelling analysis of the ways in which transnational organized crime and illicit markets threaten human, national, and international security. By asking fundamental questions and answering them in a systematic and incisive fashion, Mandel makes a unique and important contribution to both the understanding of organized crime and the nature of the challenges to security in the twenty-first century."—Phil Williams, Wesley W. Posvar Professor of International Security and Director, Matthew B. Ridgway Center, University of Pittsburgh


"Overall, [Dark Logic] would make an informative, well-written, and highly accessible undergraduate-level coursebook."—Reza Barmaki, Critical Criminology

Crime bad.
It is international and complex.
Something should be done.
Somebody is doing something here and there.
Probably we should do more.

Meanwhile now I have a book to sell to my classes.

This is an excellent book. It is the only one I have found that attempts to move beyond simple description and provides students insights into how to categorize and explain the various facets of transnational organized crime. I recommend it highly!
