it was amazing
Read in May, 2008

In my International Studies senior seminar we had to pick a book that dealt with globalization/globalism and present a project on it. Naturally, most people thought to pick the obvious such as The World is Flat. After a quick Amazon search this book popped up and I figured it had to be good because Glenny has always done an excellent job of writing about the Balkans (my love). He did not let me down!

McMafia reviews different aspects of organized crime and how it is spreading. He begins with the end of the Cold War, which marks the beginning of the underworld really becoming globalized. There were many great examples that I was able to take directly from the book and quote in my senior thesis and pretty much every student ended up buying a copy of this after our presentation.
