Description - The Crime That Pays by Frederick J. Desroches

This book is the result of interview-based research with law enforcement officers and 70 convicted drug traffickers. Dr Desroches' work is thorough, finely tuned, and as interesting and intriguing as the lives of some of his respondents. He includes a review of the research literature on higher-level drug trafficking and organised crime in Canada, the United States, and England. Programmes of study that include the examination of high-risk behaviour, anomie, and criminal justice systems will also find this work useful.
