ISBN : 9781848858152 (£59.50)

Mainland Southeast Asia is one of the world’s key regions for trafficking of illegal goods. It is home to an international trade in small arms, nuclear smuggling rings, human trafficking, contraband and counterfeit goods, illicit currency and smuggled medicinal drugs.
The scope and mechanisms of such trafficking, however, are far from understood. “An Atlas of Trafficking in Southeast Asia” brings together key researchers and cartographic specialists to provide a unique overview of the major forms of illegal trafficking in the region.
Featuring 32 specially drawn full-colour maps detailing the trafficking hubs, counter-trafficking facilities and border status for each of the trafficking activities, together with political, historical, topographic, ecological and linguistic regional maps, the atlas provides an unparalleled reference resource that will be welcomed by professionals and academics across a wide range of disciplines.
