In this unique and timely book, two of the world's leading criminologists explore the connections between crime and economic conditions. The authors skilfully draw on influential criminological theories to formulate an original "institutional" perspective. This perspective sheds light on the complex ways in which levels and forms of crime reflect the structure and functioning of the economy in advanced capitalist societies.

The book offers a readable, interesting and accessible analysis, addressing an array of different criminal activities, including:

  • violent crime

  • drug crime

  • white-collar crime

  • organised crime

  • fraud

  • corporate crime.

Crime and the Economy is written with clarity and flair. Technical terms, where used, are fully explained; relevant examples punctuate the discussion; and key points are supported by graphs and diagrams. It is essential reading for undergraduates, graduate students, and academics in criminology and sociology.

Is it greed or need that causes crime in contemporary consumer societies? In five brilliant chapters world-leading criminologists Richard Rosenfeld and Steven F. Messner explore issues from market morality to welfare policies. With their trade-mark mastery of theoretical tools and empirical data they provide a stunning overview of ideas and research, and impress with fresh insights into a classical problem of criminology. This book will fascinate students as much as advanced researchers.

The relationship between crime and the economy is surprisingly

complex, frequently defying easy description. In this slim and highly readable volume Rosenfeld and Messner deftly lead us through these complexities, making a convincing argument that the strength of social institutions provides the key link between poor economic performance and rising crime rates.
