About the Author

Brandon L. Garrett is the L. Neil Williams, Jr., Professor of Law at Duke University School of Law.


Garrett offers a cri de coeur for more corporate criminal prosecutions. Using data that he compiled, the author demonstrates that the U.S. Department of Justice has been inconsistent in its enforcement of relevant laws... What distinguishes this title from others is its clear discussion of the corporate misdeeds. It contrasts pious pronouncements by companies with details of greed and evasion. Garrett questions why high-ranking corporate officers are not prosecuted. The government, he maintains, lacks the resources and inclination to close errant businesses. Instead, it prefers fines, deferred prosecution agreements, and highly paid monitors. Much of the book details failures in prosecutions, such as not prosecuting corporate officers and failing to consider victims' interests. The best part of the work is the author's charts; these show that environmental crimes have been prosecuted vigorously, but food and drug violations much less so... A well-written, detailed expos .-- (11/15/2014)
Too Big to Jail is a superb and comprehensive book, backed up by impressive original research. What is most striking, and most valuable, is that it drives home how amazingly new and bizarre is the current field of prosecuting corporations.--Samuel Buell, Duke University
