'While Edwin Sutherland has been credited with initiating the theoretical examination of white collar and economic crime, Petter Gottschalk, through this book and his many articles, has established himself as the contemporary and premiere expert in this matter. This enlightening book will allow criminal justice practitioners and researchers, criminologists, sociologists, government leaders and others interested in the field of financial crime to better grasp the underlying causes, theoretical explanations and practical solutions for this all too common, but highly underreported, criminal behavior.' -- James F. Albrecht, NYPD Captain (ret.) and Professor, Pace University (NYC), US
'A comprehensive and insightful analysis of the complexities surrounding the causes, consequences, and control of individual level white-collar crime and organizational level corporate crime. Situating his analysis in convenience theory, Gottschalk summarizes and synthesizes an enormous body of literature from both American and European researchers and presents original case studies of white-collar crime in Norway that are sure to be of value for white-collar crime scholars and students worldwide.' -- Michael L. Benson, University of Cincinnati, US
'This innovative exposition explains white collar crime to be a convenient option for perpetrators and as driven by financial desire, organisational opportunity and deviant behaviour. It deserves to be read.' -- Colin C. Williams, Sheffield University Management School, UK
