Looting America: Greed, Corruption, Villains, and Victims
"This book presents a vivid picture of pervasive corporate fraud. The authors, well-known authorities on criminology, argue that white collar crime is the most pernicious crime problem in America today, with financial, physical, and social costs dwarfing those of street crime. Looting America traces the historical roots of scandals infecting our economy today, with provocative information that will arouse righteous indignation."--BOOK JACKET.
