A classic study of corporate crime in America, now available for the first time the way Sutherland originally wrote it—with names and case studies of the offenders included.
“Now that corporate crime has become a documented tradition of widespread scope, Sutherland’s proper name data can be released to fill out this remarkable and courageous work of criminological scholarship.”—Ralph Nader
“A scholarly and scalding examination of business and criminology, with an informative introduction.”—Newsday
“The book contains an excellent introduction by Geis and Goff and reveals, in vivid detail, the corporate looting, price-fixing cartels, union busting, and wartime profiteering engaged in by the most famous names of American business…. The new data transforms a pioneering, well-written … book into a riveting combination of powerful criminological analysis and history of American corporate malfeasance in the first half of this century.”—Michael Levi, The Times Higher Education Supplement
“Daring as it was when published, Sutherland’s monograph is perhaps more relevant and important today, when crimes of the upper world may be more costly and poisonous to the soul than the crimes of the underworld.’—Warren Bennis, Los Angeles Times Book Review

Edwin H. Sutherland was professor of sociology at Indiana University and a former president of the American Sociological Association.

"Sutherland’s treatise on white-collar crime is a landmark of excellence in studies on crime generally. One . . . cannot help but notice that the large number of seminal hypotheses raised by Sutherland continue to form the building blocks of almost all our deeper insights into the character of white-collar crime."—Kenneth Mann, American Journal of Sociology
