This book examines the issues of crime and its control in the 21st century - an era of human history where people live in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world. It is one of the very few books that examines crime and its control in a global and translational context.

The volume contains 15 chapters, which are written by well-established academic criminologists from different parts of the world.The book is divided into four main parts.

Part one of the book provides an analytical account of the nature of comparative and transnational criminology. It examines the key issue of cultural relativism, sources of cross-national crime data, and cross-national comparison of crime statistics.

Part two focuses on an examination of crime and social control issues in selected regions, or countries. It examines crime and social control in Saudi Arabia, Singapore, China, Post-Apartheid South Africa, and West Africa.

Part three focuses on the analyses of major transnational crime issues. It analyses organised crime, corruption, trafficking in humans, and white-collar crime in a global context.

Part four provides a critical examination of transnational and global responses to transnational crime. This part of the book analyses transnational policing strategies. This book will provide invaluable and first-hand readings for undergraduate and post-gradate students in criminology, law, sociology, and international relations. It will also be a very useful source of information and analyses for domestic and international law enforcement institutions.
