Summary

This text departs from the problematic concept of "white-collar crime," which only emphasizes the status of the offender, by demonstrating that occupational crime is committed by those in all walks of life, using their legitimate employment as an opportunity for crime. Though the term "white-collar crime" is sometimes used to describe this type of illegal activity, Green presents a working definition of occupational crime and examines four subtypes: organizational occupational crime, state authority crime, professional occupational crime, and individual occupational crime. The text thoroughly describes major criminological theories, including sociology of law, and then applies them to specific kinds of occupational offenses throughout the book. Occupational Crime is a blending of academic theory, legal issues, anecdotes, case studies, empirical research, and policy analysis from the vast literature on occupational crime.
