With organised gangs making increasing use of technology to expand their empires, crime is more international than it has ever been. GANGLAND TODAY charts the effects of a changing world on everything from prostitution to people smuggling, identity theft to old-fashioned robbery. Morton covers both the current activities of well-known gangs from the Mafia to the South American drug cartels, as well as several less familiar operations: the kings of crime in Israel; the Middle East, from where much crime in India is controlled; the Canadian bikers' war to control the drug trade, which has cost scores of lives of players and innocent bystanders alike.
James Morton is the author of the hugely successful Gangland series. He has long experience as a solicitor specialising in criminal work and was editor-in-chief of NEW LAW JOURNAL for many years.
