Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Albanian Mafia (AM) or Albanian Organized Crime (AOC) are the general terms used for various criminal organisations based in Albania or composed of ethnic Albanians. Albanian criminals are significantly active in the United States and the European Union (EU) countries, participating in a diverse range of criminal enterprises including drug and arms trafficking. It is said that Albania has 15-30 families or clans with around 20 people per clan, thus making membership of around 300 - 600 members. The authentic Albanian society is regulated under a set of laws called 'The Canon' (or Kanun). There are many canons in Albania: Canon of Mountains, Canon of Lek Dukagjini, Canon of Skanderbeg, Canon of Laberia. The canon regulates the life of a village and a region, not a family or a 'fis' as some claim. The word 'fis' is sometimes misunderstood because it also means 'tribe', but in Albanian language 'fis' means people related to each other by blood. For example, in American terms, all the people related by blood to Rockefellers would create the 'Rockefeller Fis'.
