Summary

In June 1996 the National White Collar Crime Center sponsored an academic workshop of white collar crime scholars. Here, a group of participants attempted to agree on a definition of white collar crime. Stemming from this, for the first time, an branch of the federal government has endorsed a definition of white-collar crime based on something other than violations of law. This book is an effort to explore some of the new definition's implications.

White Collar Deviance brings together two respected authors in the field, David Simon and Frank Hagan, to present a new conceptualization of currently competing terms: elite deviance, white collar crime, and economic crime. This book includes the many varieties of both criminal and noncriminal deviance by both individuals and organizations, and includes the behavior of both the elites and nonelites. A survey of all types of white collar deviance, both elite and nonelite, this book also contains discussion of numerous acts of elite deviance (e.g., Clinton sex scandal).
