Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

Book News Annotation:

Simpson (criminology and criminal justice, University of Maryland) analyzes the emerging trend toward the criminalization of corporate misbehavior. She explains the theory underlying criminalization, and identifies its flaws. She then argues that, based on empirical evidence, cooperative models are more likely to gain corporate compliance, though these may need to be augmented with punitive strategies. Appendices include questionnaire items, responses, and sample characteristics.

Synopsis:

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

Synopsis:

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.
