Outlining the different types of financial crime and its impact, this book is a user-friendly, up-to-date guide to the regulatory processes, systems and legislation which exist in the UK. Each chapter has a similar structure and covers individual financial crimes such as money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, insider dealing, market abuse and bribery and corruption. Offences are summarized and their extent is evaluated using national and international documents. Detailed assessments of financial institutions and regulatory bodies are made and the achievements of these institutions are analysed. Sentencing and policy options for different financial crimes are included and suggestions are made as to how criminal proceeds might be recovered. Drawing the different themes of the book together, the final chapter makes recommendations for the future and will provoke further thought and discussion on this topical subject. Each chapter also has a section on Recommending Reading. It will be a valuable resource for students studying vocational courses and will be a key text for undergraduate and post-graduate students in law schools, departments of criminal justice and business schools.

Review quote

'This book comprehensively and from a practical perspective addresses financial crime in this wider and more relevant context. It provides the reader with not only the substantive law, but sets it within the relevant regulatory and enforcement environment. This work is a vital tool for anyone concerned about protecting the integrity of their institution and bringing fraudsters to book!'Barry Rider, Centre for International Documentation on Organised and Economic Crime (CIDOEC), UK'This is a much needed and most timely book. Financial crime is a subject of increasing importance which can no longer be ignored. The authors have produced an excellent text addressing topics such as fraud, insider dealing and market abuse in a manner which combines thoroughness with accessibility. I unhesitatingly recommend the book to students as well as practitioners who are beginning to develop an interest in the subject.' Jonathan Fisher QC, London School of Economics, UK'Karen Harrison and Nicholas Ryder have made a major contribution to advancing our knowledge of this increasingly important area of law by providing excellent ideas and recommendations for the future. The authors are to be congratulated for their efforts and the book deserves to be widely read.'Roman Tomasic, University of South Australia and Durham Law School, UK
