A Comparative Analysis of Policing Models
Author: Anna Sergi
Category: Social Science
This book presents primary research conducted in Italy, USA, Australia and the UK on countering strategies and institutional perceptions of Italian mafias and local organized crime groups. Through interviews and interpretation of original documents, this study firstly demonstrates the interaction between institutional understanding of the criminal threats and historical events that have shaped these perceptions. Secondly, it combines analysis of policies and criminal law provisions to identify how policing models which combat mafia and organised crime activities are organized and constructed in each country within a comparative perspective. After presenting the similarities between the four differing policing models, Sergi pushes the comparison further by identifying both conceptual and procedural convergences and divergences across both the four models and within international frameworks. By looking at topics as varied as mafia mobility, money laundering, drug networks and gang violence, this book ultimately seeks to reconsider the conceptualizations of both mafia and organized crime from a socio-behavioural and cultural perspective.

Über vierzig Jahre arbeitete Harrison wie besessen an der Herstellung eines perfekten Chronometers und kam schließlich — trotz Missgunst und zahlreicher Anfeindungen — zum Erfolg. Dava Sobels in luzider Prosa erzählte Geschichte dieser wissenschaftlichen Gralssuche wurde ein überwältigender internationaler Erfolg.
Die ganze Geschichte
Author: Tim Weiner
Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag
Zwielichtige Machenschaften wie Drogenhandel und Geldwäsche, Mordkomplotte, illegale Interventionen und Folter: Seit ihrer Gründung vor sechzig Jahren steht die CIA für viele dubiose Vorgänge beginnend mit dem Kalten Krieg bis zum heutigen »War on Terror«. Es gibt kaum eine Veränderung im Weltgeschehen der letzten Jahrzehnte, bei der die CIA nicht ihre Hände im Spiel hatte, ob in Südamerika, Vietnam oder Afghanistan... In zahlreichen Filmen und Thrillern wird sie als kühler, brillanter und allmächtiger Strippenzieher der Weltpolitik dargestellt. Doch das Gegenteil ist der Fall. Der zweifache Pulitzer-Preisträger Tim Weiner zeigt beängstigend und zugleich erstaunlich unterhaltsam, mit welcher Inkompetenz und Naivität der mächtigste Geheimdienst der Welt operiert. Unter anderem war man in Langley vom Fall der Sowjetunion völlig überrascht, hatte die Invasion in Kuwait übersehen und die Warnsignale vor dem 11. September ignoriert.
