The materials emphasize ethical issues facing criminal law practitioners. This revision covers: important Supreme Court decisions in the areas of mens rea (Global-Tech; Flores-Figueroa), fraud (Skilling), and RICO (Boyle); congressional action in the areas of False Claims, the new securities whistleblower program, money laundering, and the rules of evidence; amendments by the Sentencing Commission in the areas of organizational sentencing and departure analysis; and DOJ action, such as the Attorney General's shift in charging policy and guidance regarding FCPA compliance programs.

Qu’ont en commun les crimes en col blanc, les cas de terrorisme (traités au civil ou dans le cadre de commissions militaires) ou encore les scandales de corruption ? Pour le chercheur du contemporain, la difficulté est de réunir des documents, des informations, des témoignages et des renseignements aptes à scruter en profondeur les multiples facettes des processus criminels mis en cause dans ces affaires. Dans ce livre, nous réfléchissons à l’intérêt d’utiliser des données médiatiques, combinées à une pluralité de rapports et de documents, pour mieux comprendre et expliquer les crimes et les conduites d’acteurs qui évoluent au sein d’organisations et de réseaux complexes. En somme, dans un contexte d’« histoire immédiate », il peut paraître fécond de recourir au cyber-espace-temps (l’arène médiatique) pour étudier des crimes et des conduites qui préfèrent l’ombre à la lumière, la dissimulation à la transparence, la négociation à l’examen public.
