Product description

Review

"A smart, outraged, and vividly described whirlwind tour of criminal conspiracy.... Clear, compelling, and scary."
--The Christian Science Monitor

"Glenny's obsessive interest in his subject is infections, and his colorful writing and eye for detail give [McMafia] the feel of a juicy tell-all."
--The Washington Post

"Riveting. . . . Provides insightful sociological perspectives about why certain nations spawn especially widespread and virulent organized crime networks."
--The Seattle Times

"Daring. . . . A bravura piece of globe-trotting reportage."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"A terrifying tour of the violent underworld of globalized crime."
--New York Post

"Eye-opening...Engrossing."
--The Miami Herald

"A vividly recounted journey through a dozen of the world's most potent gangs, cartels and transnational mafias."
--The Wall Street Journal

For anyone who wants to understand the 21st century, this illuminating and page-turning book is essential reading.
--Emma Thompson

"'Behind every great fortune, ' said Balzac, 'there lies a great crime.' Misha Glenny has updated this aperçu for our own time."
--Christopher Hitchens, author of God is Not Great

"A riveting and chilling journey . . . Readers yearning for a deeper understanding of the real-life, international counterparts to The Sopranos need look no further than Glenny's engrossing study."
--Publishers Weekly

"In this well-researched and riveting account, Glenny does for crime what he did for the Balkans. He dissects the international criminal organizations that run much of the world's economy and explains how the criminal underworld has both benefited from and contributed to globalization."
--Joseph Stiglitz, author of Making Globalization Work
