There are some stories that are so big and complex that everyday journalism can’t report them in the usual formats. The global growth of organised crime since the end of the Cold War is one of those huge stories that has proved difficult to tell. So respect is due to Misha Glenny who has spent the last few years researching the emergence of a world wide web of organised crime. He has published the results in his new book, “McMafia“. On Monday evening he will be talking about his investigations in the Old Theatre, Houghton Street, LSE at 6.30pm. It’s free. Details here. Polis’ resident journalist Lara Farrar has been looking at the issues behind Misha’s book. This is her take on the reality of organised crime.
