The end of communism marked the re-emergence of a huge rise in organised crime across Russia and Eastern Europe. High-profile efforts to combat it have met with little success.
 
Patricia Rawlinson argues that burgeoning crime rates result not only from the failures of communism but also from the problems of free market economies.
 
Drawing on interviews with members of the Russian criminal underworld, the business community, journalists and the militia, she argues that organised crime provides us with a barometer of economic well-being, not just for Russia but for any market economy.

About the Author:

Patricia Rawlinson is one of the leading experts on Russian and Eastern European organised crime. She is a lecturer in Criminology at the London School of Economics.

Review:

This fascinating book is a must for those interested in transitional societies, the shift from state communism to varieties of capitalism in the former Soviet Union and in Russia, the discourse on "organized crime' and the symbiotic role of such crime in relation to the state and economic enterprises. Rawlinson's intriguing and even chilling analysis is presented in a highly readable and lively style making this an impressive piece of work that is accessible to a wide audience. -- Dr Maurice Punch, Visiting Professor, London School of Economics and King's College London This book challenges the orthodox understandings of Russian organised crime and tears away the political agendas that misrepresent Russia's experience of capitalism and socialism. Rawlinson exposes the real dangers that threaten the values both of Russia and the West. The sovietization of the West goes on at increasing speed, making a mockery of Fukuyama's image of an end of History. -- Boris Kashnikov, Professor at the Moscow Higher School of Economics
