Corporate Crime Under Attack
By

Rating
In exploring the criminalization of corporations, this book uses the landmark "Ford Pinto case" as a centerpiece for exploring corporate violence and the long effort to bring such harm within the reach of the criminal law. Corporations that illegally endanger human life now must negotiate the surveillance of government regulators and risk civil suits from injured parties seeking financial compensation. They also may be charged with criminal offenses and their officials sent to prison. This is a revised version of the first edition, titled "Corporate Crime Under Attack: The Ford Pinto Case and Beyond" - an endeavor prompted in part by the Ford Pinto case's twenty-fifth anniversary and the corresponding recognition of the continuing significance of the issues this prosecution raised and of the important developments that have transpired in the intervening years. Beyond a new subtitle, the book has been substantially remodeled and new sections added.
