This unique work provides a detailed critique of the current criminal law system as it applies to corporate wrongdoing. It assesses the potential for the legal control of corporate criminality as informed by insights gleaned from an understanding of why such crimes occur. The authors also advance the theory that such crimes should be viewed as a failure by the company to manage its business operations and a failure to have an effective risk management system in place. Corporate crime features on various undergraduate and postgraduate criminology and criminal justice courses across the country, which makes this specialist text highly appropriate for law and criminology students. It is also an insightful text appropriate for a wider academic audience and discusses the legal, sociological and criminological dimensions of corporate crime in detail. Corporate criminal responsibility is a very contemporary topic, covered in fine detail within this work.
