              Organized crime is a global phenomenon. From Sicily came the Mafia; Japan spawned and then exported the Yakuza, as China did its Triads, and post-Soviet Russia saw the birth and rapid escalation of its very own Mafia. These criminal fraternities differ from common criminal gangs ...in that they operate much like legitimate business corporations, highly efficient and massively profitable, with a definite hierarchical structure. There was a time when these various criminal fraternities were solely a problem for the country that created them. Today, however, organized crime has gone international, and North America, Europe, Australia, and Southeast Asia are now hosts to all of them. These groups, deadly and potentially ruinous to the world's economy, will stop at nothing to preserve their interests.

              History of Torture
               

              History of Torture (Hardback)

              Torture--the deliberate infliction of pain upon the human body--is condemned by most civilized countries, but it is still practiced in many parts of the modern world. For over 3,000 years, it was regarded as not only acceptable but a necessary means of discovering truth. The abse...nce of most other methods of criminal investigation in earlier times tended to justify its use, but "crime" could cover a multitude of activities that were considered contrary to the existing social order. As long as torture remained a part of legal practice, the techniques of torturers--horrific though they were--were generally subject to a degree of control. In more recent times, however, notably during World War II, the torturers have been sadists who derived pleasure from subjecting their victims to terrible suffering. Since 1961, Amnesty International has sought a worldwide ban on torture. But some countries continue to use the rack, the thumbscrews, the "boot", electric shock treatment and other horrifying methods.

              The followers of the three major monotheistic faiths-Judaism, Christianity, and Islam-make up more than half of the world's population. Each of these religions traces its descent to the patriarch Abraham, who was the first man to completely submit to the will of a single, all-pow...erful God.
