Description

This book describes and anylyses one of the greatest threats to India's security and economic well-being: organized crime, the huge sums of money generated by it and used for various nefarious activities. It examines the increasingly sophisticated methods used to convert or launder proceeds of crime into legal tender, and shows how the nature of large-scale crime is inevitably transnational.

The book also brings to light the intimate connection between terrorist activities and crimes like drug trafficking, political corruption, tax evasion, and trafficking in women and children. Drawing on his extensive experience as a law enforcement officer and his field research in India and abroad, Trehan identifies the key issues facing India today. This book will interest lawyers, law enforcement personnel, law students and researchers in criminology and sociology, as well as general readers.

REVIEWS

This book will evoke widespread attention in India and abroad, the area that it covers is one of great importance for governments around the world.
-Karan Singh, former Cabinet Minister, Government of India

The Financial war on organized crime and terrorist organizations has spawned much discussion, but little analysis. A profound exception is Jyoti Trehan's work. Few have the depth and breadth of experience to be able to sensibly and convincingly subject this dynamic and controversial topic to the depth of analysis he has achieved.
-Barry A K Rider, Executive Director,
Centre for International Documentation on Organized and Economic Crime, Cambridge, and formerly Director of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, University of London
