A detailed survey of a growing scourge of the global economy-the smuggling of people, materials, and money. Nuclear materials, sex slaves, intellectual property, human organs, children, and practically everything else. Welcome to the fastest growing business in the new millennium-smuggling. Despite its vast global reach and increasingly sophisticated methods of concealment and delivery, smuggling is an enterprise as old as history itself. Smuggling used to be a family business. Today it is big business.

Illicit Trafficking: A Reference Handbook offers a comprehensive introduction to the problems of illegal trafficking that have emerged from and been intensified by globalization. This title provides an examination of how criminal enterprises have exploited opportunities to enrich themselves and broadened their involvement in many areas of illegal trafficking while compromising or evading legal authorities. The coverage includes a brief history of illicit trafficking, analyzes current problems, and examines local and global containment policies such as Presidential Decision Directive 42. It also explores key international agreements on money laundering, bank secrecy laws, extradition treaties, and technologies that have proven to be effective transnational crime-fighting tools.
