The fall of Yugoslavia : the third Balkan war by Misha Glenny( Book )

64 editions published between 1974 and 2002 in 8 languages and held by 2,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fall of Yugoslavia tells the whole, true story of the Balkan Crisis - and the ensuing war - for those around the world who have watched the battle unfold with a mixture of horror, dread, and confusion. When Croatia and Slovenia declared their independence in June 1991, peaceful neighbors of four decades took up arms against each other once again and a savage war flared in the Balkans. The underlying causes go back to business left unfinished by both the Second and First World Wars. In this acclaimed book, now revised and updated with a new chapter on the Dayton Accords and the subsequent U.S. involvement, Misha Glenny offers a sobering eyewitness chronicle of the events that rekindled the violent conflict, a lucid and impartial analysis of the politics behind them, and incisive portraits of the main personalities involved. Above all, he shows us the human realities behind the headlines and puts in its true, historical context one of the most ferocious civil wars of our time."--Jacket

McMafia : a journey through the global criminal underworld by Misha Glenny( Book )

43 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in 10 languages and held by 1,948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the deregulation of international financial markets in 1989, governments and entrepreneurs alike became intoxicated by forecasts of limitless expansion into newly open markets. No one would foresee that the greatest success story to arise from these events would be the globalization of organized crime. This book is an encompassing, authoritative investigation of the now proven ability of organized crime worldwide to find and service markets driven by a seemingly insatiable demand for illegal wares. Whether discussing the Russian mafia, Colombian drug cartels, or Chinese labor smugglers, Misha Glenny makes clear how organized crime feeds off the poverty of the developing world, how it exploits new technology in the forms of cybercrime and identity theft, and how both global crime and terror are fueled by an identical source: the triumphant material affluence of the West.--From publisher description

Nemesis : one man and the battle for Rio by Misha Glenny( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How did Antônio Francisco Bonfim Lopes, a hardworking young father, become the king of Rocinha, the largest slum in Rio; the head of a drug cartel; and perhaps Brazil's most wanted criminal, known to all as "Nem"? Nemesis is the riveting account of his ruthless ascent in Rio's terrifying underworld, his sway over its anarchic outlaw culture, and his accidental fall. Nem tried to bring welfare and justice to a playground of gang culture and destitution, but he quickly found himself embroiled in a world of gold hunters and evangelical pastors, bent police officers and rich-kid addicts, quixotic politicians and drug lords with math degrees. Spanning rainforests and high-security prisons, filthy slums and glittering shopping malls, Nemesis chronicles Brazil's journey into the global spotlight--and the battle for the beautiful but damned city of Rio as it struggles to break free from a tangled web of corruption, violence, drugs and poverty. Nem is held at the center of it all, locked in a fight for his country's future."--Jacket

Dark market, Misha Glenny by Misha Glenny( Recording )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The benefits of living in a digital, globalised society are enormous; so too are the dangers.The world has become a law enforcer's nightmare and every criminal's dream. We bank online, shop online, date, learn, work 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 complacent about our personal security - sharing our thoughts, beliefs and the details of our daily lives with anyone who cares to relieve us of them?In this fascinating and compelling book, Misha Glenny, author of the international bestseller McMafia, explores the three fundamental threats facing us in the 21st century: cyber crime, cyber warfare and cyber industrial espionage. Governments and the private sector are losing billions of dollars each year, fighting an ever-morphing, often invisible, often super-smart new breed of criminal: the hacker.Glenny has travelled and trawled the world. And by exploring the rise and fall of the criminal website, DarkMarket, he has uncovered the most vivid, alarming and illuminating stories. Whether JiLsi or Matrix, Iceman, Master Splynter or Lord Cyric; whether Detective Sergeant Chris Dawson in Scunthorpe or Agent Keith Mularski in Pittsburgh, Glenny has tracked down and interviewed all the players - the criminals, the geeks, the police, the security experts and the victims - and he places everyone and everything in a rich brew of politics, economics and history.The result is simply unputdownable. DarkMarket is authoritative and completely engrossing. It's a must-read for everyone who uses a computer: the essential crime book for our times

McMafia : die grenzenlose Welt des organisierten Verbrechens by Misha Glenny( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bis zu 20% des globalen Bruttosozialprodukts sollen nach Schätzungen des Internationalen Währungsfonds und der Weltbank aus kriminellen Aktivitäten stammen. Jahrelang recherchierte der britische BBC-Korrespondent Misha Glenny auf den Spuren dieser erschreckenden Tatsache. Dabei führten ihn seine Wege durch die ganze Welt; überall traf er auf Verflechtungen zwischen Politik, Wirtschaft und organisiertem Verbrechen. Der Zusammenbruch des Kommunismus beschleunigte diese Entwicklung z.B. im osteuropäischen Bereich, wo Drogenhandel, Zigarettenschmuggel und Frauenhandel zu einträglichen Geschäften wurden. Instabile Staaten, Globalisierungsprozesse und die wachsenden Migrationsströme sind weitere Faktoren, die zur Ausbreitung des organisierten Verbrechens beigetragen haben. Glenny hat hier ein Buch vorgelegt, das eigentlich zur Pflichtlektüre eines jeden Politikers auf der ganzen Welt gehören sollte. Jede öffentliche Bibliothek sollte diesen Grundbestandstitel neben Roberto Saviano "Gomorra" (BA 2/08) stellen. (1)
