In this powerful account, Misha Glenny takes us on a journey through the new world of international organised crime.

Über die Epochen hinweg haben sich literarische Werke und Genres explizit oder implizit mit dem Kapitalismus auseinandergesetzt. Doch gerade die vergangenen Jahrzehnte, in welchen der Kapitalismus nach Mark Fisher zum ausweglosen Vorstellungshorizont avanciert ist, zeugen von einer vermehrten Infragestellung des Kapitalismus in der literarischen Produktion sowie der Literaturwissenschaft. Vor diesem Hintergrund vereint der interdisziplinäre Sammelband Beiträge aus der Germanistik, Romanistik, Amerikanistik und Anglistik, die den Blick auf verschiedene zeitgenössische Manifestationen des globalen Kapitalismus und deren literarische oder filmische Repräsentationen richten.

We live our lives online – banking, shopping, working, dating – but have we become complacent? Who's got your money? We share our personal details, our thoughts and movements with a faceless screen, with no real idea what lies behind it. Who's got your identity? DarkMarket exposes the shocking truth about what lurks behind our computers: an underground crime network that invades our privacy and threatens our security on a daily basis. Who's got your life? Glenny tracks down the key players – including criminals, national and international security experts, police, crack addicts, the Saudi Royal Family, and most importantly, victims – to reveal the true scale of this new global threat. Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2012

Shadow Trades

Alongside burgeoning global business, which asserts its legality, ethics and social responsibility, there exists a dark side of shadow trades manifesting various shades of legitimacy. Not only do the latter’s corrupt practices, dubious supply chains and other illicit operations run in tandem with global business, these borderless trades intersect with economic structures and contribute to systems adopted by corporations, endorsed by neoliberal capitalism, that are often condoned by governments and unwittingly sustained by consumers. In a very real sense, all of us may be implicated in shadow trades through our work, consumption and citizenship. Even before we can begin to confront and constrain shadow trades, their business models first need to be identified and analysed in all their networked complexity, interconnectivity with global business and embeddedness within the world economy. Numerous hard questions need to be raised around enabling circumstances and responsibilities of stakeholders, as well as the winners and losers resulting from business globalisation and socio-economic inequities within and between countries. Providing background, evidence and analysis on select exemplars of shadow trades, this book provides graduate students of business, plus scholars in the social sciences, together with practitioners and policymakers, consumer groups and civil society, with an indispensable resource for critical engagement. Only through knowledge gained by research and advocacy for transparency can we begin to shed light on this dark side of global business, enabling all of us to grapple with activism against and collaborative action towards undermining all shadow trades. Amos Owen Thomas was a Docent / Reader in Marketing and International Business at Stockholm University until his recent retirement

Globalization and Sovereignty

This provocative and important text offers a new way of thinking about sovereignty, both past and present. Distinguished geographer John Agnew boldly challenges the widely popular story that state sovereignty is in worldwide eclipse in the face of the overwhelming processes of globalization. He argues that this perception relies on ideas about sovereignty and globalization that are both overstated and misleading. Agnew contends that sovereignty-state control and authority over space is not necessarily neatly contained in state-by-state territories, nor has it ever been so. Yet the dominant image of globalization is the replacement of a territorialized world by one of networks and flows that know no borders other than those that define the Earth itself. In challenging this image, Agnew first traces the ways in which it has become commonplace. He then develops a new way of thinking about the geography of effective sovereignty and the various geographical forms in which sovereignty actually operates in the world, offering an exciting intellectual framework that breaks with the either/or thinking of state sovereignty versus globalization.

We live in a digital, globalised world - this statement has become a banal truism but never before have the implications of this new world been more frightening nor important for our daily lives. It is a world that has become a law enforcement nightmare and every criminal's dream. The Internet and the digital world are rapidly becoming our business and social lifeblood - we cannot conceive a world where we do not broadcast what we are thinking to all our Facebook friends and where we express our individualism not through our actions but through 140-character messages on Twitter. We bank online, shop online, date online, learn online, work online and live, online. But have the institutions that keep us safe on the streets learned to protect us in the burgeoning digital world? Have we become too complacent about our personal security - sharing our thoughts, beliefs and banking details online with anyone who cares to relieve us of them? In this fascinating and compelling account, Misha Glenny, author of the international bestseller, McMafia: Seriously Organised Crime, explores the three fundamental threats facing us in the twenty-first century: cyber crime, cyber warfare and cyber industrial espionage. Governments and the private sector are losing billions of dollars a year fighting an ever-morphing, often invisible and often very smart, new breed of criminal. What links these threats? The answer is quite simple - the hacker. Glenny has travelled the world speaking with military and intelligence communities, police, politicians, lawyers and most importantly, with the hackers and their victims. He reveals the personalities of these twenty-first-century criminals and delves beneath the bravado and sheer audacity of their criminal activities to reveal an unlikely solution to cyber crime that authorities have, until now, been overlooking. Authoritative and completely engrossing, DarkMarketz is the crime book of our times. It will, in turns, have you on the edge of your seat as the action moves from Yorkshire to the Ukraine, Istanbul to Calgary, and, very quickly, on your knees, praying that you have been wiser than the hackers. DarkMarketz is a thrilling and vital call to arms - for our governments, for the private sector and for people like you and me.
