"This excellent set covers corporate, organizational, governmental, financial, and political crimes, as well as important legislation and laws related to the subject. An impressive title on a neglected field of criminal justice. Highly Recommended."

With more than 500 entries (including up-to-date information on such high profile cases as Martha Stewart and Enron), the Encyclopedia of White-Collar & Corporate Crime gathers history, definitions, examples, investigation, prosecution, assessments, challenges, and projections into one definitive reference work on the topic.

The Encyclopedia of White-Collar & Corporate Crime is edited to incorporate information about a variety of white-collar crimes, and provides examples of persons, statutes, companies, and convictions. Each entry offers a thorough and thoughtful summary of the topic. Rather than a simple definition, users are given a satisfying and sophisticated synopsis with references for further study.

Articles consider all aspects of white-collar and corporate crime, including:

* Law: describes specific elements of corporate law and the various illegal acts to which they apply
* Individuals: brief biographical sketches, primarily focused on how they relate to the study of white-collar crime
* Events: criminal events include descriptions of specific cases of white-collar crime, both past and current

The Encyclopedia was developed primarily for college, public, and high school libraries. Post-graduate academics, law firms, and corporations will also find this a valuable addition to their libraries.
