Abstract: NEW TYPES OF CRIMES AND NEW METHODS FOR COMMITTING CRIMES ARE VIEWED FROM A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE. IT IS POINTED OUT THAT PRACTICALLY NO COUNTRY IS IMMUNE FROM THE TYPES OF INTERNATIONAL OR TRANSNATIONAL CRIME WHICH ARE DEVELOPING. NEW TYPES OF WHITE COLLAR CRIME SUCH AS COMPUTER ABUSE, CORPORATE CRIME, AND THE APPLICATION OF MODERN BUSINESS METHODS TO ORGANIZED CRIME ARE BRIEFLY DISCUSSED, AND THE NEED FOR INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION AND NATIONAL LEGISLATION TO DEAL WITH THE CRIMINAL ASPECTS OF MULTINATIONAL BUSINESSES, MONOPOLIES, AND POLITICAL LOBBIES IS EMPHASIZED. OTHER CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES, SUCH AS DRUG TRAFFICKING, KIDNAPING, AND POLITICAL TERRORISM ARE ALSO TOUCHED ON. THE AUTHOR FEELS THAT THE AGGRESSION AND VIOLENCE THAT PERVADE MANY MODERN TYPES OF CRIME POSE A SERIOUS THREAT TO SOCIETY, AND THAT THIS VIOLENCE STEMS FROM A PROCESS OF FRAGMENTATION OF FAMILY LIFE AND PARENTAL CARE IN URBAN AREAS. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT URBAN SOCIETY MUST BE RESHAPED TO PROVIDE THE NATIONAL HOME CARE AND THE SENSE OF BELONGING THAT EVERY PERSON NEEDS.
