Summary
From the Back Cover: Deviant Globalization argues that, far from being marginal, illicit activities are a pervasive and integral part of globalization. Examining a wide range of underground industries, this unique reader explains why understanding deviant globalization, and the moral arbitrage that fuels it, is crucial for making decisions and enacting policies that will maximize the benefits of globalization and minimize its ill effects
