Corporate Crime: A Reference Handbook (Contemporary World Issues) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Should corporations and their employees be held criminally liable for shoddy business practices? This volume explores both sides of the question, discussing the nature and scope of corporate crime, the controversies surrounding it, and the most promising solutions. How do we define corporate crime and how do we detect it? Corporate Crime guides readers through the definitions and concepts as well as the difficulties in detecting, prosecuting, and punishing corporate wrongdoing.

How do corporations get away with their crimes? This reference examines both the successes and the failures of government and law enforcement policies concerning the punishment of corporate crime and explores leading contemporary proposals for controlling and deterring it. It is an essential information source for any citizen of corporate America.

Book News Annotation:

Hartley (criminal justice, Texas A&M International U.) presents a reference handbook concerning corporate crime in the United States and around the world. After a discussion of the history of corporations and corporate crime, discussion of corporate crime typologies, and a profile of important laws and statutes, he discusses a range of problems, issues, and controversies concerning corporate crime, including definitional issues, philosophical issues of corporate responsibility, and the collection of data on corporate crime. He then discusses global corporate crime, addressing issues connected with political corruption, war and conflict, reconstruction and development, and provision of health care to the poor. The volume also includes a chronology of key events, biographical sketches of important people, statistical data on corporate crime and criminal justice outcomes, a list of organizational and Web resources, and a list of print and non-print informational resources, and a glossary of key terms.
