The new edition of this popular reader presents the cutting edge of research on corporate and governmental deviance in the U.S. today. Seventy-five percent of the readings are new and include the work of such major figures as James S. Coleman, Lawrence W. Sherman, Edwin H. Sutherland, Marshall B. Clinard, Gilbert Geis, Brent Fisse, and John Braithwaite. Using such instructive cases as the heavy electrical equipment antitrust cases, the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment, the campaign against marketing infant formula in the Third World, and the Ford Motor Company's Pinto, this text helps students to understand how organizations, not just individuals, commit deviant acts.
