The Independent Culture

After Glenny's thrilling and chilling tour of global crime and the motley folk who run it, who stands in the dock? We do. Even those consumers who shun classic gangster markets in drugs, sex or gambling profit from illegal labour and cheap goods made in places where might mocks right.

This terrific exposé of big-ticket felonies from China to Brazil is as stuffed with outsize crooks and scams as a smuggler's suitcase with fake Rolex. Starting from the mayhem that spread out from Balkan wars, Glenny delivers a swingeing verdict on the globalisation that created a "golden age" for cross-border traffic in stimulants, people, cash – even rogue software.
