Targets of the Securities and Exchange Commission
Imprint: Yale University Press
This pathbreaking book not only reveals how "wayward capitalists"—representatives of publicly held corporations, stock buyers and sellers, stockbrokers, investment advisers, accountants, and attorneys—defraud investors but also explains how Securities and Exchange Commission enforcers catch, investigate, and prosecute these offenders.
"The book is a valuable source for grasping the intricacies of corporate deviance. an attractive feature is the author's discussion of research design and execution. . . . An excellent reference section is provided for the inquiring reader. I recommend the book for both the practitioner and academician. The author blends the fields of business and criminology, which should be of interest to anyone studying private justice and white collar crime."—Robert J. Meadows, Security Administration
"An important book."—USA Today
"The book contains many interesting anecdotes in addition to the research findings and is bound to be controversial."—Stephen L. Fogg, Journal of Accountancy
