The topic of white-collar crime is introduced and major controversies related to white-collar crime are discussed in this text in the tradition of Edwin Sutherland's definition of white-collar crime as "crime committed by a person of respectability and high status in the course of his occupation." Material situates white collar crime in the political-economic reality, arguing that it is not an aberration but the normal way of doing business and making law in contemporary society. Some topics discussed include state-corporate crime in a globalized world, toxic crimes and environmental justice, and the strategic role of women's NGOs. The editor is affiliated with Eastern Kentucky University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
