Crimes of Privilege : Readings in White-Collar Crime
This reader brings together under a unifying theoretical approach knowledge about and debate over white-collar crime. Editors' introductions preface each of the six chapters in the book, and each of the 31 selections - both classic and contemporary - has been significantly edited for readability and suitability for the college student. The readings address conceptual conflicts as well as empirical studies of the structure of opportunities, the characteristics of white-collar offenders and their decision making, and the various approaches to controlling white-collar offending. Additionally, the book includes 21 specially designed panels that call-out particular issues from the readings by offering case examples taken from local and regional newspapers. Together, the readings and the panels offer the student both analysis and examples of white-collar crime.
