This book offers a comprehensive, accessible and student-friendly account of a subject which is becoming of increasing concern and debate amongst criminologists. The key element in its approach will be to look at corporate crime in the broad contexts of theoretical criminology, applied criminology and criminal justice.

Chapters in the book set out the types and nature of corporate crime, discuss the various theories that have been developed to explain it, look at recent developments, (such as the increasing size and power of corporate organisations) and their implications for the future, as well as the question of the policing and punishment of corporate crime.
