Abstract

Seventy years after Edwin Sutherland introduced the term "white collar crime" in his Presidential Address to the American Sociological Association, criminologists and sociologists have failed to develop a comprehensive understanding of crime, criminal behavior, and criminal justice. This failure can be traced to disciplinary and epistemological shifts in sociology and criminology that occurred post-1970. The chapters in this volume bring white-collar crime back into the mainstream of criminological inquiry by using recent criminological insights in theory and methods to advance the study of white collar crime.
