For courses on White Collar and Organizational Crime taught in Criminal Justice, Criminology, Sociology, or Business departments. A much needed addition to the field, this is the first text to address white collar crime not as a sociological phenomenon, but in the same systematic manner that criminal justice texts deal with street crime. It presents a clear definition and typology of white collar crime based on three major categories: crimes of fraud, crimes against public administration, and regulatory offenses. It also draws together, for the first time, a large amount of existing data to estimate the current nature and extent of white collar crime. In examining specific crimes, the text looks at enforcement, prosecution, and sentencing outcomes in a way that allows clear comparison with the criminal justice system's treatment of other types of crime. Case studies are used throughout the text to encourage critical thinking.Albanese, Jay S. is the author of 'White-Collar Crime in America', published 1994 under ISBN 9780023012617 and ISBN 0023012617.
