Insider trading. Savings and loan scandals. Enron.

Corporate crimes were once thought of as victimless offenses, but now―with billions of dollars and an increasingly global economy at stake―this is understood to be far from the truth.

The International Handbook of White-Collar and Corporate Crime explores the complex interplay of factors involved when corporate cultures normalize lawbreaking, and when organizational behavior is pushed to unethical (and sometimes inhumane) limits. Featuring original contributions from a panel of experts representing North America, Asia, Europe, and Australia, this timely volume presents multidisciplinary views on recent corporate wrongdoing affecting economic and social conditions worldwide.

  • Criminal liability and intent
  • Stock market and financial crime
  • Bribery and extortion
  • Computer and identity fraud
  • Health care fraud
  • Crime in the professions
  • Industrial pollution
  • Political corruption
  • War crimes and genocide

Contributors offer case studies, historical and sociopolitical analyses, theoretical and legal perspectives, and comparative studies, featuring examples as varied as NASA, Parmalat, the Italian government, and Watergate. Criminal justice responses to these phenomena, the role of the media in exposing or minimizing them, prevention, regulation, and self- policing strategies, and larger global issues emerging from economic crime are also featured.

Richly diverse in its coverage, The International Handbook of White-Collar and Corporate Crime is stimulating reading for students, academics, and professionals in a wide range of fields, from criminology and criminal justice to business and economics, psychology to social policy to ethics. This powerful information is certain to change many of our deeply held views on criminal behavior.

Review:

The International Handbook of White-Collar and Corporate Crime is an absolutely superb compilation of articles on white-collar crime and its control. The International Handbook is a truly essential acquisition for any library serving those with an interest in white- collar crime, and no white-collar crime scholar can afford to be without a copy of this volume close at hand. The fifty authors represented here succeed in addressing most if not all of the most important current issues pertaining to white-collar crime and its control. Altogether, this volume is quite certain to influence the scholarly understanding of white-collar crime and its control for years to come, and will long be regarded as a landmark contribution to the field.

-David O. Friedrichs, Professor & Distinguished University Fellow, University of Scranton (Pennsylvania, USA) Author of: Trusted Criminals: White-Collar Crime in Contemporary Society 3E (2007)
