Reviews

'In this important book veteran researchers Grabosky and Stohl draw on organized crime to illuminate the neglected terrain between terrorism and more ordinary forms of illegal behavior. The book is required reading for anyone interested in the critical intersection between political violence and illegal business.' - Gary LaFree, Director, National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, University of Maryland 'Jargon-free and bristling with thought-provoking examples from around the globe, Grabosky and Stohl have produced a lucid overview of a much-neglected area within criminology - the often murky interface between organised crime and terrorism.' - Dr. Keith Hayward, Senior Lecturer in Criminology, University of Kent, UK 'A good read, for anyone interested in learning about terrorism and organized crime beyond the rhetoric of public figures and the narrow discourses emanating from law enforcement' - Probation Journal

The intersection of crime and terrorism is a particularly interesting aspect of the book. Grabosky and Stohl examine the networks, the common activities and their common use of illicit havens to provide them safe bases for their operations. But they are careful to show that the diversity of organized crime and of terrorist groups prevents over generalizations...The book serves its function of providing a compact overview of crime and terror. The book will allow its readers to have a framework to understand these two challenging phenomena. -- Louise Shelley
