Pub. Date:
This alphabetical encyclopedia contains terms relating to white-collar crime, a not-often academically studied topic. Gerber (criminal justice, Sam Houston State U.) and Jensen (sociology, U. of Idaho) select topics based on the tradition of Edwin Sutherland, who invented the term and officially defined the field; they focus on corporate and organizational crime over occupational, as well as contemporary and historical cases, societies in North America, Europe, and Asia, and theoretical explanations. Examples of entries: Ponzi Scheme, Enron, Exxon Valdez, identity theft, the cruise line industry, OSHA, Michael Milken, junk bonds, insider trading, Jimmy Swaggart, Lee Iacocca, and price fixing.
