Georgios Antonopoulos, Georgios Papanicolaou

Unlicensed capitalism Greeg style

illegal markets and `organised crime` in Greece

€ 19.95

Manifestations of what mainstream criminology currently identifies as
`organised crime` have long existed in Greece and in some respects exhibit
deep roots in the country`s economic and cultural history. The term as such,
`organised crime`, was only brought to currency in the 1990s by the media
in the country. Curiously this was not a development preceded or followed
by extensive and reliable research. From a criminological viewpoint, very
little is known on `organised crime` in Greece either in general or on
specific types of `organised crime`. As case studies and official accounts
are few and far apart, the widespread use of the term in public debates
bears more the unmistakable marks of truthiness than factuality. The
purpose of this book, which comprises a number of previously published
case studies, is precisely to challenge the taken-for-granted, mainstream
accounts featuring a certain exceptionalist notion of `organised crime`;
that `organised crime` is invariably associated with certain groups and
milieus, a dark and obscure underworld radically separated from an
orderly and lawful upperworld. The five case studies included in this book
directly challenge this view across a range of illegal markets: the cigarette
black market, the car theft and trafficking business, the Ecstasy market,
human smuggling and trafficking, and the counterfeit CD/DVD market.
The concluding chapter provides a synthesis of the empirical evidence
presented and attempts to connect research findings with a series of
questions of both theory and policy.
