The Russian Mafia

The Russian Mafia

What is the Russian Mafia? This unique book, the product of a ten-year immersion in the world of post-Soviet crime, charts the emergence of the Russian Mafia from the vory-v-zakone to the transition to a market economy, the privatization process and pervasive corruption. The ability of the Russian State to protect people and properties is compared to the services offered by fragments of the state apparatus, private security firms, ethnic crime groups, and the Mafia.
