The Failure of Organized Crime Control
Distributed for Pluto Press
Delving into attempts to implement policies to control organized crime in America and other countries, Woodiwiss reveals little-known manifestations of organized crime among the political establishment. A follow up to his 2005 Gangster Capitalism, Woodiwiss brings his argument up to the present with extensive new research that also explores organized crime in Russia, the use of war as a pretext for crime, and the failures and complicity of the UK and European governments. He offers a particularly deep analysis of the financial sector’s corruption that contributed to the 2008 global economic meltdown, the institutionalized corporate fraud following 9/11, and the war on terror in Iraq.
An exploration into the use of organized crime methods within the international establishment, Double Crossed is for anyone with an interest in a revealing—and disturbing—look at a criminal double standard in our world today.
