"The aim to create academic awareness and trigger discussion about the operationalisation of Sports Related Crimes (SRC), in order to facilitate an effective justice response globally. ... Match-Fixing in International Sports is a very informative collection on a rather under-researched topic that is receiving increasing attention. ... This book should be read by anyone interested in understanding match-fixing, the reasons behind it and its implications around the globe."
