Delinquency, crime, and social process by Donald R Cressey( Book )

11 editions published between 1969 and 1974 in English and held by 1,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Book on criminological research studies and theories in the areas of crime, delinquency and social process. The emphasis in this book, however, is not exclusively on the problems of explaining what statistical distributions of crime and delinquency mean and how individuals become criminals and delinquents. The reader should be aware that as one examines statistical distributions of delinquency and crime rates and offender characteristics one must pay close attention to variables that relate to the settings and circumstances under which the statistics were collected. Once social scientists simply analyzed the available statistical facts. The datum for study is the process by which the statistical information is assembled, not just the final assembly. For example, arrest statistics are often used as the basis of generalizations about the social class distribution of delinquency and crime, but there is systematic underreporting of crimes of respectable segments of the society. Thus, among the selections reprinted in this book are research studies, descriptive accounts, and essays devoted to the illegal activities of businessmen, labor union officials, physicians, politicians, policemen, and middle-class youngsters. The theoretical framework of this book is designed to make these violations just as understandable as the criminal violations of persons in the lower socioeconomic class

White collar crime : the uncut version by Edwin Hardin Sutherland( Book )

8 editions published between 1949 and 1983 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1949 noted sociologist Edwin Sutherland published an analysis of the misdeeds of seventy of America's largest corporations and their executives. 'White collar crime'- the term he coined to differentiate this form of behavior from the unlawful acts of ordinary folk- quickly became a part of the language as the book virtually became an instant classic. Sutherland's explanations of the origins and dynamics of middle- and upper-class illegality has since been challenged many times, but it remains the fundamental theory to which all later writers on the subject have had to refer to. In the timid climate of the late 1940s, Sutherland's publisher, fearing legal repercussions, required him to remove the names and other identifying descriptions of the corporations and officials involved in the illegal activity, and it is this 'expurgated' version that has been known to the public for many years. Now, in this 'uncut version' of his book, Sutherland's original study- in all its colorful detail, and with the names and case studies of offenders- is restored
