The high profile collapse of Enron, WorldCom, and Arthur Andersen are recent examples of corporate scandals that have rocked the business world. This comprehensive encyclopedia covers the history and current state of major corporate and other forms of white-collar crime. While emphasis is placed on contemporary events, the most significant events from the history of white-collar crime are included as well. Geographic coverage focuses on events in English speaking parts of the world, but major cases in other countries are also included. From Union Carbide's deadly man-made disaster at Bhopal, to the oily mess caused by the Exxon Valdez, to the financial shennanigans that brought down Barings Bank, to Jim Bakker's daliances and the fall of the PTL empire, this no-holds-barred comprehensive encyclopedia of white-collar crime leaves no stone unturned in its exhaustive inventory of malfeasance committed by the wealthy. After an essay on the historiography of white-collar crime, roughly 200 alphabetically arranged entries (written by leading scholars in the field) provide an in-depth look into the various aspects of white-collar crime, describing people, laws, companies, types of crimes, and events.
