In this text for students in criminal justice, authors Di Marino (Kaplan University) and Roberson (Washburn University) describe different types of white-collar crime, such as banking and currency related crimes, and racketeering and organized crime. They explain social and psychological theories for understanding white-collar crime and outline methods for prevention and control. One chapter is devoted to the laws governing the securities industry. Learning features include chapter objectives and review questions; some chapters offer practical activities. The book also provides a list of useful government and agency websites, along with websites of the financial sector, enforcement task forces, and other organizations, such as the Internet Crime Complaint Center. An appendix offers a classic article from 1940 written by Edwin Sutherland.
