Overview

This book explores a neglected topic in criminology—women and white-collar crime. Taking a case study approach, it examines how women and crime has changed and why women have become more involved in corporate, political, and professional offenses. Fully exploring the topic, it discusses all issues including perpetrators, victims and whistle-blowers and incorporates interviews with female scholars and professionals. From insider trading to medical malpractice, it includes contemporary examples that engage the reader and promote discussion in a controversial area of study. Criminologists, anyone with an interest in criminal practices.
