How do we define white-collar crime? Why do we make a distinction between embezzlement by a corporate executive and street crimes such as theft, drugs, and prostitution? Will a change in cultural climate affect existing definitions of white-collar crime? What do studies of white-collar crime reveal about the society in which it takes place? How does the criminal justice system address the issue of white-collar crime and deal with those who commit it? There are no easy answers to these questions. Although white-collar crime has a long history, it has received little attention because violations, violators, and victims are often unclear. The eighteen articles chosen for this collection provide the opportunity to recognize and understand white-collar crime, its impact on society, and the need to enact more effective countermeasures to deal with it.
