The problem of white-collar crime has been grabbing headlines and gaining increased public attention.  In this timely new edition of The Criminal Elite, James William Coleman goes beneath the surface impressions to lay out the common forms and causes of white-collar crime and analyze the toll it takes on American society.  The Sixth Edition integrates a large body of new research, statistics, and legal developments, and offers detailed up-to-date coverage of such topics as intellectual property infringements, identity theft, the new wave of corporate scandals, and the growing threats to our civil liberties in our post-9/11 world.  This new edition can be incorporated into a variety of sociology, criminal justice, and history courses.
