King Pin? A Case Study of a Middle Market Drug Broker

King Pin? A Case Study of a Middle Market Drug Broker Abstract: The article is concerned with ‘middle market’ drug distribution, based on research that involved prison interviews with middle and upper level drug dealers and interviews with a range of enforcement personnel. It offers a preliminary discussion of different definitions of the ‘middle market’, where various forms of drug brokerage connect up different levels of drug markets. It goes on to provide a detailed case study of a single middle market drug distribution network, illustrating the complexity of such operations, the way in which drug brokers work as free trading entrepreneurs, and the often misunderstood role of violence in serious crime networks such as these. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice Wiley
