White-collar criminal; the offender in business and the professions by Gilbert Geis( Book )

16 editions published between 1968 and 2017 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his presidential address to the American Sociological Society more than a quarter of a century ago, Edwin H. Sutherland advanced the idea that crime was being perpetrated by members of society that were considered "normal," "affluent," and "well-adjusted". This notion of a new criminal class played havoc with the traditional theories of crime causation and directed considerable research away from the criminal at war with society to the criminal nestled snugly in society's lap. Since then the concept of "white-collar crime" has become even more important for the understanding not only of criminal behavior but of the total social and moral structure of American society as well.White-Collar Criminal brings together, for the first time since the concept was enunciated, the major classic and contemporary writings in this rapidly expanding area of investigation. The book provides a provocative array of studies of the crimes committed on the upper echelons of American life-embezzlement, business theft, consumer fraud, antitrust violations, and many others-as well as the most significant theoretical writings on the subject.The book is both absorbing and intellectually challenging. Teachers seeking to give their students an understanding of this basic segment of criminological thought and research will find this volume a unique combination of empirical data and theoretical analysis in highly readable form.Gilbert Geis is currently professor emeritus in the department of Criminology, Law, and Society at the University of California, Irvine. He has been project director on grants from the National Institute of Mental Health and the Walter E. Meyer Research Institute of Law, and research director of an Office of Economic Opportunity program employing former narcotic addicts in street work with addicts and as classroom assistants in junior high schools. Geis has served as chairman of the section on Crime and Delinquency of the Society for the Study of Social Problems and as secretary-treasurer of the criminology section of the American Sociological Association. He has been a consultant to the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice; in this capacity he was responsible for draft statements on white-collar crime and on compensation to victims of violent crime."--Provided by publisher

White-collar and corporate crime : a documentary and reference guide by Gilbert Geis( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While white-collar crime and corporate greed and irresponsibility have recently received much attention, misdeeds at the top of the financial food chain are certainly nothing new. Corruption, bribery, insider trading, securities fraud, stock manipulations, and illegal business practices have long been an ongoing problem in big business. From Gilded Age railroad scandals to the muckraking period and from the Savings and Loan debacle to corporate fallout during the recent economic meltdown, some individuals and companies have chosen to take the low road to achieve "the American dream." While these offenders throughout modern history may have lacked ethics, morals, or good judgment, they certainly were not wanting in creativity. White-Collar and Corporate Crime: A Documentary and Reference Guide traces the fascinating history of white-collar and corporate behavior from the 1800s through the 2010 passage of the Dodd-Frank financial reform measure. Gilbert Geis scrutinizes more than a century of episodes involving corporate corruption and other self-serving behaviors that violate antitrust laws, bribery statutes, and fraud laws. The various attempts made by authorities to rein in greed and the methods employed by wrongdoers to evade these controls are also discussed and evaluated

"In the nearly twenty years since the first edition of White-Collar Crime, the fields of criminal justice and criminology have changed dramatically. Nonetheless, the revised edition, published in 1977, still holds a place on many bookshelves, a testament to the editors' ability to identify works of the highest quality. At long last, with the assistance of new co-editor Lawrence M. Salinger, White-Collar Crime has been fully revised, including the most extensive bibliography on white-collar crime that has ever been compiled."--Page 4 de la couverture

Stealing dreams : a fertility clinic scandal by Mary Dodge( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When three whistle-blowers informed authorities and the media in 1995 that doctors at the prestigious and lucrative Center for Reproductive Health - a fertility clinic operated by the University of California, Irvine (UCI) - were taking eggs from some women and implanting them into others without donor consent, a scandal unfolded that ended careers, destroyed reputations, and forever altered the lives of many families. This first incident of egg theft, as well as claims of insurance fraud, research misconduct, and misappropriation of funds, grabbed headlines around the world and was featured on television programs from Prime Time to The Oprah Winfrey Show. By the time the scandal had subsided several years later, two of the clinic's preeminent physicians had fled the country to avoid prosecution, one doctor was convicted on criminal charges in a highly controversial trial, and UCI had paid over twenty million dollars to settle lawsuits filed by former patients." "The full story behind the much-publicized case is unveiled for the first time in this riveting book. The authors untangle an intricate web of repeated cover-ups, scapegoatings, evasions, nastiness, and injustice. They scrutinize how a complex interplay of circumstances set the stage for wrongdoing at the clinic, reveal how the dramatic events were played out on both the public and legal battlefields, and examine the personal histories, motivations, and actions of the major players - the physicians, the whistle-blowers, the claimants, the lawyers, the various investigatory committees, the overzealous media, and UCI administrators."--Jacket

Insider trading, savings and loan scandals, Enron - Corporate crimes were once thought of as victimless offenses, but now - with billions of dollars and an increasingly global economy at stake - this is understood to be far from the truth. "The International Handbook of White-Collar and Corporate Crime" explores the complex interplay of factors involved when corporate cultures normalize lawbreaking, and when organizational behavior is pushed to unethical (and sometimes inhumane) limits. Featuring original contributions from a panel of experts representing North America, Asia, Europe, and Australia, this timely volume presents multidisciplinary views on recent corporate wrongdoing affecting economic and social conditions worldwide. It covers such aspects as: Criminal liability and intent, stock market and financial crime, bribery and extortion, computer and identity fraud, health care fraud, crime in the professions, industrial pollution, political corruption, war crimes and genocide. Contributors offer case studies, historical and sociopolitical analyses, theoretical and legal perspectives, and comparative studies, featuring examples as varied as NASA, Parmalat, the Italian government, and Watergate. Criminal justice responses to these phenomena, the role of the media in exposing or minimizing them, prevention, regulation, and self-policing strategies, and larger global issues emerging from economic crime are also featured. Richly diverse in its coverage, "The International Handbook of White-Collar and Corporate Crime" is stimulating reading for students, academics, and professionals in a wide range of fields, from criminology and criminal justice to business and economics, psychology to social policy to ethics. This powerful information is certain to change many of our deeply held views on criminal behavior
