Overview

Why do corporations comply with the law? When companies violate the law, what kinds of interventions are most apt to return them to compliant status? The purpose of this book is to examine whether a shift toward the use of criminal law with its emphasis on punishment and stigmatization will be a successful crime control strategy.

She concludes that strict criminalization models that rely on punishments will not yield sufficiently high levels of compliance.
