White-Collar Crime : An Opportunity Perspective, Paperback / softback Book


White-Collar Crime: An Opportunity Perspective analyzes white-collar crime within a coherent theoretical framework.

Using the opportunity perspective, which assumes that all crimes depend on offenders recognizing an opportunity to commit an offense, the authors uncover the processes and situational conditions that facilitate white-collar crimes.

In addition, they offer potential solutions to this persistent and widespread social problem without being reductive in their treatment of the difficulties of control. With this third edition, Benson and Simpson have added substantive online teaching materials and expanded their coverage with up-to-date case studies and discussions of recent investigations into white-collar crime and control.

These timely updates reaffirm this accessible and rigorous book as a core resource for courses on white-collar crime.
