Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In White Collar Crime Reconsidered, the world's leading authorities on the subject expand on Sutherland's concept of white-collar crime. They present the most compelling new scholarship as they take stock of the research and theory of the past fifty years . . . An exemplary research tool on the subject." —Law Books in Review
In 1940, Edwin Sutherland coined the term white-collar crime in his presidential address to the American Sociological Society. In the present volume authorities on the subject expand upon Sutherland's concept of white-collar crime as they take stock of the research and theory of the past 50 years to address both the theoretical issues of the causes of white-collar crime and the problematic issues surrounding its social control by the criminal justice system and other agencies.
