Michael Benson, “White Collar Crime: An Opportunity Perspective”
Routledge | 2009 | ISBN: 0415956633 | 240 pages | PDF | 2,1 MB
"White Collar Crime" is an introduction to the subject from an opportunity-based perspective. This perspective focuses on the role of opportunity in structuring the frequency and type of white collar crime. All such crime occurs because offenders perceive that there is an opportunity to act, and the authors focus on this because they feel it is a more convincing rationale for explaining how and why it occurs than other criminological theories that focus on anomie, organizations, social control and its lack, and psychological profiling.While wedded to this perspective, the book is comprehensive in its coverage of the issue. It is divided into three parts: an introduction to the subject and the theories surrounding it; coverage of all aspects of white collar crime from an opportunity perspective; and, finally, chapters that consider how we should respond to it and prevent it. The subject is covered in most if not all criminal justice and criminology programs, and interest has been growing immensely due to factors like the Enron case and identity theft rings. The authors are two of the best known figures in the subfield.
