National borders do little to prevent trafficking in illegal goods, but often hamper the efforts of the authorities in pursuit. In this new edition Boister examines whether too much focus on suppressing criminality, and not enough on protecting human rights and the rule of law, has prevented efforts to create an effective transnational legal space.
