    Abstract

    This new book from Routledge, which critically explores the contemporary (21st century) and innovative approaches adopted by states to counter financial crimes is a welcome addition to the Transnational Criminal Justice Series. By bringing together 17 emerging and established legal scholars, the book not only provides novel chapters on topics such as tax evasion and asset freezing, but also offers legal analysis of jurisdictions such as Kuwait, Qatar and Iran which have been given scant attention by the academia. The book provides critical inquiries mainly from distinctive criminal and international law perspectives yet at the same time offers insights which would complement other social science approaches on the current state of the policies and laws (law in books) and human or institutional factors, impacting law in action.
