About this book
A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld
Now a major television series starring James Norton (War & Peace, Happy Valley) and created by Oscar-nominated screenwriter and film director Hossein Amini (Drive) and James Watkins (The Woman in Black), co-produced by BBC, AMC, and Cuba Pictures.
In this powerful and groundbreaking work, award-winning author and journalist Misha Glenny takes us on a journey through the new world of international organized crime. Tracing the history of the shadow economy, Glenny exposes the nexus of crime, politics, and money that has come to shape and inform the post–Cold War era. From gun runners in the Ukraine to money launderers in Dubai, cyber criminals in Brazil, and racketeers in Japan, McMafia builds a breathtaking picture of a secret and bloody business. This edition features a new chapter reflecting on the expansion of McMafia culture in the past decade and its infiltration of major institutions of the global elite — including the most powerful centres of government — brought to light by revelations such as WikiLeaks and the Panama Papers.
