Corporate Crime, Law, and Social Control

by

Corporate Crime, Law, and Social Control Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why do corporations comply with the law? When companies violate the law, what kinds of interventions are most apt to return them to compliant status? The purpose of this book is to examine whether a shift toward the use of criminal law with its emphasis on punishment and stigmatization will be a successful crime control strategy. The author reviews whether current legal systems based in criminal, civil, and regulatory law "deter" corporate crime. She concludes that strict criminalization models that rely on punishments will not yield sufficiently high levels of compliance.

Synopsis:

This book provides a critical assessment of strategies to control the illegal conduct of corporations.
