    Those are some incredible (and harrowing) photographs. Powerfully conveys the sense that the struggle over drugs is a truly global, violent conflict.

    There is a lot on our website on Georgian organized crime including a link to the website of the Georgia center on crime and corruption. You will also find reference to our book Organized Crime and Corruption in Georgia, edited by Louise Shelley, Erik R. Scott and Anthony Latta, Routledge 2007. Kupatadze has contributed to two chapters in the book.
