MEDIA REVIEWS

"Battersby's masterful treatment of 'unlawfulness' in various cultural contexts manages to unravel the complexity of global crime and related dynamics. Clear, accessible, and erudite, this study provides much needed insights into the dark side of globalization." - Manfred B. Steger, Professor of Political Science and Global Studies, University of Hawai'i-Manoa and RMIT University, Australia

"Paul Battersby has written an innovative and compelling account of the changing nature of global crime. The book delves into the complex and frequently hidden mechanisms and processes of the global underworld, a world occupied by both state and non-state actors. [It] will be engaging reading to all those interested in the contemporary pattern of unlawful behaviour that extends across borders." - David Held, University of Durham, UK

"Criminologists and more broadly, any serious students of crime and criminal law who commit themselves to engaging fully with the book should be rewarded with a richer, more sophisticated understanding of the increasingly complex world within which crime and its control plays out." - David O. Friedrichs, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books

"While those familiar with critical sociological and political theories may have already anticipated how previous theoretical contributions can be applied to current global affairs, this book is a very rich overview and a compelling argument, not the least in helping to raise new questions and open social science to new approaches such as complexity theory. [...] Students can benefit from the very rich coverage, while security scholars and practitioners can make use of an intriguing conceptual contribution that has been applied to recurring and newly emerging global problems." - Marinko Bobica, Global Crime
