The first seven of the ten contributions from sociologists and criminologists assembled in this volume are not concerned with robberies of the local convenience store but rather with the mortgage foreclosure crisis and corporate and white-collar crime. They discuss such topics as fraud and inequality in the subprime mortgage crisis, public attitudes toward control of the mortgage foreclosure crisis, social reactions to white-color crimes, causation and scenarios for corporate crime, and illegally backdated stock options. The final three contributions do discuss some street level issues such as criminal consequences in neighborhoods afflicted with home foreclosure, intimate partner violence and unemployment, and the shrinking budgets of police departments in economic downturns. Editor Deflem is affiliated with the sociology department, U. of South Carolina. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
