Release Date: 1990

Scandal in contemporary U.S. life is an institutional sociological phenomenon. It is not due primarily to psychopathological and/or biopathological variables. Rather, it's built into the fabric of U.S. institutions, which means that scandals will occur regularly. This is the only book on white-collar crime to take a holistic view of the subject. The book traces the causes of elite deviance to the structure of power and wealth in the United States, including both criminal and non-criminal elite acts that cause great harm. The book is unique in its scope, covering not only corporate crime and political corruption in historical and contemporary context, but the relationship between the two as well. The author systematically examines the nation's most serious scandals, including the JFK assassination, Watergate, Iran-Contra, the Savings and Loan scandal, crimes of the Bush administration, scandals of the Clinton Administration, the Waco raid, and others. Anyone with an interest in scandals-sociologists, criminologists, law enforcement professionals, and others.
