Review of Poveda, Rethinking White-Collar Crime

A review by Robert P. Weiss of Tony Poveda’s book, Rethinking White-Collar Crime, is a critical survey of the nature, etiology, and control of white- collar crime in the United States. Weiss argues that Poveda’s project to “rethink” white-collar crime couldn’t be more timely. As the pendulum of class justice today swings high on the side of the rich and powerful, white-collar crime remains invisible relative to other types of crime, and public concern and the criminal law have been riveted almost exclusively on crimes of the poor.
