White-collar crime rarely features in discussions of crime problems, but may be more damaging than many other crimes which do. This book investigates this complex subject, reviews literature on the subject and examines how it is treated by the criminal justice system. The book attempts to discover the extent of this form of criminal activity, and to identify the occupations of perpetrators and the organizations in which they are employed. The book goes on to consider the suggestions that have been made for controlling and dealing with white-collar crime. The author argues that white-collar crime should be recognized as a serious and damaging form of criminal activity that needs to be investigated with greater tenacity and punished with greater severity.
