Crime is a major area of public policy and opinion. Attention has been devoted to measuring crime, along with explaining the reasons for its committal and exploring the means by which it may be regulated and controlled. Despite such attention, however, much crime remains 'invisible'. Examples include crimes committed by the powerful, environmental crimes, political crimes and crimes which often take place within the private sphere of the home and the domain of work. In this volume a distinguished panel of academics explore the nature, type and regulation of invisible crime. In so doing, many of the contributions focus on 'crimes' which are committed at work, the 'victimization' which is experienced while in employment, and the mechanisms of workplace regulation, surveillance and enforcement. The discussions are both original and wide-ranging and provide a unique set of perspectives on the invisibility of much crime, victimization and regulation. The areas covered include white-collar crime, crime and work connections, health and safety crimes, cybercrime, the regulation of fraud, workplace illicit drug use and CCTV, surveillance and the workplace environment.
Thought-provoking and incisive, Invisible Crimes: Their Victims and Their Regulation is an invaluable source of information and will be essential reading for students, lecturers, researchers and practitioners in the fields of criminology, socio-legal studies, law, sociology, social work, business studies and related disciplines.
