Carolyn Nordstrom traveled through Africa, Europe, Asia, and the United States to investigate the dynamics of illegal trade in goods, from blood diamonds and arms to pharmaceuticals, exotica, and staples such as food and oil. In Global Outlaws she peels away the layers of this vast economy that extends from a war orphan selling Marlboros on a street in Angola to powerful transnational networks reaching across continents and oceans.

Carolyn Nordstrom is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Notre Dame
