Product description

Review

'For its theoretical richness and concomitant applicability to prevent and control white-collar crime at both policy and organizational levels, this white-collar crime textbook is unmatched…It provides a thoroughly researched, empirically-based text that successfully employs a key white-collar crime theoretical approach to studying and combatting corporate crime.'Danielle McGurrin, Portland State University, USA

'The book’s chief virtue is that it deals with an extremely complex area of study straightforwardly and succinctly. It outlines the key theories and explains the industrial and business context surrounding the crimes it discusses very well. It has up-to-date examples. It does all of this while advancing its own unique theoretical perspective.'Luca Follis, Lancaster University, UK

'Benson and Simpson’s new edition is most welcome. The authors recognize that white-collar crime changes shape over time but their opportunity model is well able to account for that change. Their theoretical model also leads to important insights into the nature of white-collar crime and possible controls over that behavior.'Robert F. Meier, University of Nebraska at Omaha, USA

'Unlike the ‘volume crimes’ and illicit markets that are the normal focus of studies seeking to understand the nature of criminal opportunities, Benson and Simpson have for some years now innovatively and systematically developed an ‘opportunity perspective’ for understanding the ‘how’ of white-collar crimes. Opportunities do not mean that white-collar crimes will happen; they are a necessary but not sufficient condition. But the authors again make a compelling case for analyses of the structures of opportunities to be a fundamental element of explanatory models of white-collar crime.'Nicholas Lord, University of Manchester, UK 

'The new instructor support materials for the 3rd edition are very helpful. In my opinion, through its comprehensive and approachable coverage of the many issues surrounding white-collar crime (definitional, measurement, types, responses, etc), this book is the best textbook among the dozens of them on the market.' Arlen Egley, Jr., Assistant Professor, Department of Justice Systems, Truman State University

'Benson and Simpson interweave rich descriptions and research findings to tell an easily accessible story about the role of opportunity structures in the commission and control of white-collar crime. Their thoughtful overview offers important insights for future white-collar crime scholarship and an understandable entry point for students new to the topic. It is a must-read!'Carole Gibbs, Michigan State University, USA
