This text critically examines the nature and extent of crime and deviance in the professions and how it should be dealt with. Looking in particular at the crimes committed by professionals such as doctors, accountants and nurses, the book offers some innovative solutions to preventing and controlling professional crime. Containing 16 chapters written by some of Australia's leading scholars in the fields of professional regulation and crime control, the book examines the increasing professionalization of the workforce and the changes in the way in which professionals carry out their work.
