White-Collar Crime and Criminal Careers (Cambridge Studies in Criminology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Studies of the criminal career to date have focused on common criminals and street crime; criminologists have overlooked the careers of white-collar offenders. David Weisburd and Elin Waring offer here the first detailed examination of the criminal careers of people convicted of white-collar crimes. Weisburd and Waring uncover some surprising findings, which upset common wisdom about white-collar criminals. Their findings illustrate the misplaced emphasis of previous scholarship in focusing on the categorical distinctions between criminals and noncriminals.

Synopsis:

Weisburd and Waring offer here the first detailed examination of the white-collar criminal career.

Synopsis:

This is the first detailed examination of the criminal careers of people convicted of white collar crimes. It is important both because it examines an area of study ignored by others, and because by so doing we are led to new and interesting ideas about white collar crime, criminality and criminal careers.
