Reviews of Mafias on the Move

  • "Varese is one of the most acute students of global organised crime and a gripping storyteller."

    Misha Glenny, London Review of Books

  • "Varese is a leader of the younger generation of scholars taking on the important issues in the difficult study of organized crime."

    Susan Rose-Ackerman, Yale University

  • "This fascinating and excellent book is a worthy successor to Diego Gambetta's work on the Sicilian mafia and Varese's own book on the Russian mafia."

    Susan Rose-Ackerman, Yale University

  • "This is a really terrific book...creative, nuanced, well researched, and accessible. Its great value is its focus on failed attempts at mafia transplantation."

    Timothy Frye, Columbia University

Reviews of The Russian Mafia

"L’ouvrage de Federico Varese est l’une des toutes premières études systématiques de la mafia en Russie, qui dépasse avec succès le stade du descriptif, voire simplement de l’anecdotique. C’est un livre important quant à l’économie politique des transactions dans un système faiblement institutionnalisé et l’auteur réussit à rendre un texte dense et fortement structure théoriquement aussi lisible qu’un bon roman policier."

Jacques Sapir Cahiers du monde russe

"Varese is a leader of the younger generation of scholars taking on the important issues in the difficult study of organized crime."
