This book covers two lesser known but important members of the Italian Mafia: the ’Ndrangheta and the Sacra Corona Unita. Italian criminal organizations, in particular Mafia, are one of the most commonly researched organized crime groups, usually focusing on the Sicilian Mafia, Cosa Nostra, or the Neapolitan Mafia, Camorra. However, Italy has other two other Mafias, one in Apulia, Sacra Corona Unita, and the other in Calabria, ’Ndrangheta. Although an extensive literature is available on Cosa Nostra and Camorra, less is known about the other two organizations, particularly their operations in the United States. Territory is one of the most important elements in the Mafia because the criminal organization operates its signoria territoriale, controlling every illegal activity in its sphere of action. This territorial power goes beyond the Italian boundaries reaching the United States of America and other non-European countries, with the mere aim of developing their drug/weapon deals and money laundering businesses. Mafia, therefore, is not a uniquely Italian phenomenon as it might appear, but a worldwide phenomenon, affecting many societies and economies. This unique volume is its interest into a field as yet completely provides new information about the ’Ndrangheta and Sacra Corona Unita written by an interdisciplinary group of Italian scholars. It covers organizational, hierarchic, and operative aspects: that is, the role that they have in politics, in their own families, in business relations in Italy and abroad. It also highlights the particular role that Cosa Nostra and Camorra had in their development. This work will be of interest to criminology researchers studying organized crime, corruption, money laundering and trafficking, as well as researchers from related fields, such as political science, economics, and international relations.

From the second half of the the years '90s, we are assisting to a progressive internationalisation of 'Terror(ism)', through the diffusion on a large scale fo the New Technology as an essential component of our lives. National and International Terriorism, in fact, has found a great ally in technological instruments and, in particular, Internet, since they guarantee a high level of anonymity and they represent new channels of communication, essential to keep internal contacts among the members of a single terrorist organisation and they are fundamental instruments also to develop an international network of connections both for idelogogical support, as well as for massive recruitment campaign. New technology has also developed new and more aggressive "technological weapons" (mass-destruction armaments and CBRNE weapons), used by the criminal terrorist organisations for creating new and alternative forms of blackmailing the International Institutions and the 'Civil Society'. These armaments are also considered a new source of raising funds for financing terrorism, because of the illegal trade of toxic and nuclear material. The time is mature for clarifying the concrete subversive capability of the several Terrorist movements that at a National-Intentional level represents a menace to the 'global security', in the light also of the fact that New Technology has progressively contributed in creating a world without spatial and temporal frontiers, through Internet and the technological instruments. This research also has the aim to develop a new program of prevention/repression strategy against Terrorism in any form and idelogical identity, to shorten the distance between the Terrorist phenomenon and the capability of the International Society to prevent and control this 'pathological' problem, using the same technological instruments exploited by Terrorism: from an 'asymmetric war' to a more and more 'symmetrical war', where the battle-field is the the Informational Technology.
