In this unique and timely book, two of the world's leading criminologists explore the connections between crime and economic conditions. The authors skilfully draw on influential criminological theories to formulate an original "institutional" perspective. This perspective sheds light on the complex ways in which levels and forms of crime reflect the structure and functioning of the economy in advanced capitalist societies. The book offers a readable, interesting and accessible analysis, addressing an array of different criminal activities, including: @!violent crime @!burglary @!drug crime @!white-collar crime @!organised crime @!fraud @!corporate crime. Crime and the Economy is written with clarity and flair. Technical terms, where used, are fully explained, relevant examples punctuate the discussion, and key points are supported by graphs and diagrams. It is essential reading for undergraduates, graduate students, and academics in criminology and sociology.
