White-collar crime costs the United States more than $300 billion each year. It is surprisingly common, with one in every three Americans eventually becoming a victim. The criminals often dismiss these crimes as victimless, but those unfortunate enough to fall prey would disagree.

An Introduction to Corporate and White-Collar Crime provides readers with an understanding of what white-collar crime is, how it works, and the extent to which it exists in our society. The broad-based coverage in this text analyzes the opportunity structures for committing white-collar crime and explores new ways of thinking about how to control it.

Topics include:

  • Theories behind white-collar crime, including social and psychological theories
  • Routine activity, crime pattern, and situational crime prevention theories
  • Laws that govern the securities industries, including the Securities Exchange Act and Sarbanes–Oxley
  • Bank fraud, money laundering, racketeering, and organized crime
  • Crimes involving public officials and obstruction of justice
  • Control and prevention of white-collar crimes and sanctions for white-collar criminals

The material is organized and presented in a logical fashion, with each chapter building from the previous content. Every chapter begins with objectives to help readers focus on the topic. Several chapters conclude with a practicum to facilitate real-world understanding of the material.
