In the nearly twenty years since the first edition of White-Collar Crime, the fields of criminal justice and criminology have changed dramatically. Nonetheless, the revised edition, published in 1977, still holds a place on many bookshelves, a testament to the editors' ability to identify works of the highest quality. At long last, with the assistance of new co-editor Lawrence M. Salinger, White-Collar Crime has been fully revised, including the most extensive bibliography on white-collar crime that has ever been compiled.
