Today’s White-Collar Crime discusses more than the basics, theories, and typologies of commonly encountered offenses such as fraud, forgery embezzlement, and currency counterfeiting, to include the legalistic aspects of white-collar crime.
Because of the inextricable links between abuse-of-trust crimes such as misuse of government office, nepotism, bribery and the realm of corporate corruption, these issues are also included in this work. The book also emphasizes the connection of white-collar crime and acts of international terrorism, in addition to the more controversial aspects of possible abuses of power within the public arena posed by the USA Patriot Act of 2001 and the asset forfeiture process.
