Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Profit Without Honor clearly exposes the battle between personal gain and individual integrity and provides a comprehensive overview of white-collar crime in American society. Presenting a vivid picture of all types of white-collar crime, the book covers high-profile cases, the latest trends in criminal activity and a thorough discussion of the victims and consequences of these criminal behaviors.  This edition addresses the current economic crisis and discusses its causes, cases and participants. Utilizing both academic and popular sources, the book challenges readers to grasp the importance and long term effects of white collar crime in America.

Review:

“Seldom do books of great scholarship take on the pacing of a thriller or the moral force of a statesman’s oratory. Profit Without Honor does both.  In ever-lively anecdotes and startling statistics, the authors expose the dark side of our justice system, a place where well-dressed thieves pull off million dollar heists with frightening regularity and almost always get away with it. [The authors] lay bare for us the environment that gave rise to the Enron and Worldcom scandals. It is a disturbing, fury-igniting story…and one every citizen shareholder should read.  Profit Without Honor is an outstanding book.”

    -Clifton Leaf, Executive Editor, Fortune Magazine

 

“A great book!  Profit Without Honor combines immaculate scholarship, penetrating insight, and a  witty and engaging style of writing.  Readers will find material that will trigger righteous indignation, and insights that will make them nod in agreement and wonder why they hadn’t thought of that.  The authors provide a vast array of information on white-collar offenses that challenges current concentration on street lawbreaking as the most serious crime problem in the United States.”

    -Gilbert Geis, Professor Emeritus, Former President, American Society of Criminology
