9780313335242: Encyclopedia of White-Collar Crime
Rezension:

"The work commences with a discourse that includes a potpourri of white collar crime definitions. Distinguished contributors readily seize opportunities to present significant and informative discussions throughout the carefully constructed passages. Scholars offer their expertise in a meaningful and deliberate manner. The brief entries provide a pleasant reading experience as observed in the suitably organized and easy-to-read format. Notable citations incorporated after each entry entice readers to further investigation...The Encyclopedia of White Collar Crime represents an excellent contribution to libraries in the United States...The content would serve as an excellent reference for the advanced study of white collar crime." - American Reference Books Annual "This alphabetical encyclopedia contains terms relating to white- collar crime, a not-often academically studied topic. Gerber and Jensen select topics based on the tradition of Edwin Sutherland, who invented the term and officially defined the field; they focus on corporate and organizational crime over occupational, as well as contemporary and historical cases, societies in North America, Europe, and Asia, and theoretical explanations. Examples of entries: Ponzi Scheme, Enron, Exxon Valdez , identity theft, the cruise line industry, OSHA, Michael Milken, junk bonds, insider trading, Jimmy Swaggart, Lee Iacocca, and price fixing." - Reference & Research Book News "Recent scandals in the business community--from Enron to Martha Stewart--have led business schools and criminal justice programs to beef up their offerings on white-collar crime and business ethics. In line with this trend, editors Gerber and Jensen have assembled a concise guide covering the major cases, corporations, organizations, and key players. Researchers will find over 120 entries ranging from the topical (price fixing, nursing home fraud) to people (Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker). Specific corporations (Archer Daniels Midland, Halliburton) play a major part too. Besides companies, government agencies and scandals are singled out (Iran-Contra, OSHA), and some historical events are taken into account (Teapot Dome scandal). Particularly strong at providing background information on consumer issues (false advertising, 900 numbers), this encyclopedia is also global in scope. Most entries range from one to three pages and include a bibliography. Libraries needing to fill a gap will find this volume useful...Recommended. All levels." - Choice "An interesting and absorbing look at the historical, economic and social aspects of white-collar crime." - Reference Reviews
