For more than three decades, rational-choice theory has reigned as the dominant approach both for interpreting crime and as underpinning for crime-control programs. Although it has been applied to an array of street crimes, white-collar crime and those who commit it have thus far received less attention. Choosing White-Collar Crime is a systematic application of rational-choice theory to problems of explaining and controlling white-collar crime. It distinguishes ordinary and upperworld white-collar crime and presents reasons theoretically for believing that both have increased substantially in recent decades. Reasons for the increase include the growing supply of white-collar lure and non-credible oversight. Choosing White-Collar Crime also examines criminal decision making by white-collar criminals and their criminal careers. The book concludes with reasons for believing that problems of white-collar crime will continue unchecked in the increasingly global economy and calls for strengthened citizen movements to rein in the increases.

Institutionelle Korruption und Arzneimittelvertrieb

Dieses Buch untersucht Korruption und korruptionsnahe Erscheinungsformen im Bereich des Pharmamarketings und Arzneimittelvertriebs. Dabei geht es insbesondere der Frage nach, ob die zunehmende Kriminalisierung und/oder die Ausbreitung von Compliance Management Systemen zu substanziellen Veränderungen und „Konformitätsgewinnen" geführt haben. Auf der Grundlage einer qualitativen Interviewstudie und ergänzender empirischer Erhebungen wird gezeigt, dass und warum diese fortschreitende (Selbst-)Regulierung bereichsweise zu formaler Regeleinhaltung im Pharmavertrieb beiträgt, ohne aber die Herstellung und Nutzung problematischer Interessenkonflikte grundlegend einzudämmen. Vielmehr besteht eine spezifische „institutionelle Korruption“ fort. Die dafür maßgeblichen Einzelausprägungen werden im Detail analysiert.

Unternehmensverantwortlichkeit und -sanktionierung

Die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Themenkomplex 'Unternehmensverantwortlichkeit und -sanktionierung' geht vom maßgeblichen Einfluss der Unternehmen auf das Wirtschafts-, Sozial- und Rechtsleben aus. Diesem Einflusspotenzial kommt insbesondere dann strafrechtliche Bedeutung zu, wenn es sich in sozialschädlichen und kriminellen Taten niederschlägt, deren Folgen weit über die Möglichkeiten einzelner Individuen hinausgehen. Im Anschluss an diese kriminalitätsbezogene Phänomenologie und unter Berücksichtigung der bisherigen Verortung der Verbandssanktionierung im Ordnungswidrigkeitengesetz stellt Athina Sachoulidou die bereits jahrzehntealte, trotz großer Skepsis in der deutschen strafrechtlichen Literatur "immer auf der Tagesordnung bleibende" Frage nach der rechtlichen Zulässigkeit eines Kriminalstrafrechts für Unternehmen nochmals neu.

Understanding White-Collar Crime

An Opportunity Perspective

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134487649

Unlike other books of its kind, Understanding White-Collar Crime: An Opportunity Perspective uses a coherent theoretical perspective in its coverage of white-collar crime. Using opportunity perspective, or the assumption that all crimes depend on offenders having some sort of opportunity to commit an offense, allows the authors to uncover the processes leading up to white-collar crimes and offer potential solutions to this rampant issue, without being reductive in their treatment of the topic. With this second edition, Benson and Simpson have greatly expanded their coverage to include new case studies, substantive materials, and an annotated appendix of online resources to make this a core book for courses on white-collar crime.

There is now a long tradition of academic literature in media studies and criminology that has analysed how we come to think about crime, deviance and punishment. This book for the first time deals specifically with the role of language in this process, showing how critical linguistic analysis can provide further crucial insights into media representations of crime and criminals. Through case studies the book develops a toolkit for the analysis of language and images in examples taken from a range of media. Â The Language of Crimeand Deviance covers spoken, written and visual media discourses and focuses on a number of specific areas of crime and criminal justice, including media constructions of young people and women; media and the police, 'reality' crime shows; corporate crime; prison and drugs.It is therefore a welcome and valuable contribution to the fields of linguistics, criminology, media and cultural studies.

Criminalization, Representation, Regulation

What is a crime and how do we construct it? The answers to these questions are complex and entangled in a web of power relations that require us to think differently about processes of criminalization and regulation. This book draws on Foucault's concept of governmentality as a lens to analyze and critique how crime is understood, reproduced, and challenged. It explores the dynamic interplay between practices of representation, processes of criminalization, and the ways that these circulate to both reflect and constitute crime and "justice."

Governance and Regulation in Social Life

Essays in Honour of W.G. Carson

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1135389993

Category: Law

Page: 272

Comprising fourteen articles by leading international contributors, including some of the most prominent socio-legal and criminological scholars working in the field, this volume is currently the only work available that critically examines W.G. Carson and his crucial influence in the turn towards sociological approaches to criminology and a criminological interest in governance and social control. The 1970s witnessed an epiphany in the sociological understanding of crime in Britain. The correctional perspective, which assumed crimes had inherent or essential qualities that distinguished them from other acts, was superseded by the analysis of how social events came to be defined as so harmful and repugnant as to require criminalization. This shift in perspectives was exemplified in W.G. Carson’s work, which combines a Marxist acknowledgement of the imperative for profit with a symbolic interactionist attention to the restraining effect of prestige and status among producers and regulators. This key work is an essential read for postgraduates and researchers studying and researching in the areas of criminology and law.

The Routledge Handbook of Irish Criminology is the first edited collection of its kind to bring together the work of leading Irish criminologists in a single volume. While Irish criminology can be characterised as a nascent but dynamic discipline, it has much to offer the Irish and international reader due to the unique historical, cultural, political, social and economic arrangements that exist on the island of Ireland. The Handbook consists of 30 chapters, which offer original, comprehensive and critical reviews of theory, research, policy and practice in a wide range of subject areas. The chapters are divided into four thematic sections: Understanding crime examines specific offence types, including homicide, gangland crime and white-collar crime, and the theoretical perspectives used to explain them. Responding to crime explores criminal justice responses to crime, including crime prevention, restorative justice, approaches to policing and trial as well as post-conviction issues such as imprisonment, community sanctions and rehabilitation. Contexts of crime investigates the social, political and cultural contexts of the policymaking process, including media representations, politics, the role of the victim and the impact of gender. Emerging ideas focuses on innovative ideas that prompt a reconsideration of received wisdom on particular topics, including sexual violence and ethnicity. Charting the key contours of the criminological enterprise on the island of Ireland and placing the Irish material in the context of the wider European and international literature, this book is essential reading for those involved in the study of Irish criminology and international and comparative criminal justice.

Crime, Shame and Reintegration

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Category: Biography & Autobiography

This book, a contribution to general criminological theory, suggests that the key to why some societies have higher crime rates than others lies in the way different cultures go about the social process of shaming wrongdoers. Shaming can be counterproductive, making crime problems worse. But when shaming is done within a cultural context of respect for the offender, it can be extraordinarily powerful, efficient, and just form of social control.
