How Russia was Criminalized

Comrade Criminal not only lays out the power of the Russian mob, which has been done before, but also gives the reader the history of the mob's growth. And this isn't just over the last ten years or so, but pre-World War II. The author profiles the evolution of Russia's underworld and shows how the Communist era made it into what it is today. Definitely worth the read.

Communism to organized crime. Inevitable!

Handelman has done a wonderful job in showing the corruption of Communist society and how the greed and wish for prosperity inherent in humans all over the world has led to organized crime. It amazed me how connected to organized crime the Russian state was and still is. The sections on drugs, arms smuggling and nuclear weapons were very interesting. The book also shows how race based the crime gangs are, like they are in the United States and everywhere else. But Mr. Handelman, stop referring to them as "mafiya". Yeah, it sounds "Russian" or whatever, but it's annoying. Overall, I liked the book because it is very well researched and documented.
