    Book Summary

    Illicit international trade pits governments against well-financed networks of highly dedicated individuals. This book reveals the scale of this dark underground. It uncovers the connections between illegal industries and shows how they join forces to breed lines of business, feed off political instability, foster violence and enable terrorism.

It uncovers the connections between illegal industries and shows how they join forces to breed new lines of business, feed off political instability, foster violence and enable terrorism.

And how, in our free, modern world, have over 30 million women and children - in South East Asia alone - been trafficked in the past ten years? read less...
