Summary

The sixth edition of this text is completely updated to reflect the many recent changes in the structure and environment of organized crime. Abadinsky provides a detailed analysis of the origins, history, theoretical explanations, and structure of organized crime. He then examines the business of organized crime, including drug trafficking, gambling, and loansharking. The methods employed by law enforcement agencies to combat organized crime, and the policy decisions reached by various investigating committees and commissions, including the Presidents' Commission on Organized Crime, are also explored.
