Reviews

“The authors concentrate on the cultural background of criminal networks and how their traditions affect their activities, as well as incorporating analysis of their entrepreneurial endeavours. … Leman and Janssens set out to examine leadership and entrepreneurial practices commonplace in criminal networks, and essentially provide a business-centred analysis of these networks’ activities. … This book is thoroughly recommendable for researchers wishing to gain insight into the activities of criminal networks.” (Fiona Loeffel, Slovo, Vol. 28 (1), Winter, 2016)
