Ghazi-Tehrani and Pontell’s important book offers a comparative analysis of white collar crime in China.

- Benjamin van Rooij, Chair in Law and Society, University of Amsterdam, Global Professor of Law, University of California, Irvine, USA

My book of the year, and perhaps the decade. Well written, edgy, theoretical, and disturbing, it illuminates how white-collar and corporate crime have been silent companions of China’s glamorous economic growth over the past four decades.

- Liqun Cao, Professor, Ontario Tech University, Ontario, Canada

This book provides a novel criminological understanding of white-collar crime and corporate lawbreaking in China focusing on: lack of reliable official data, guanxi and corruption, state-owned enterprises, media censorship, enforcement and regulatory capacity.

The text begins with an introduction to the topic placing it in global perspective, followed by chapters examining the importance of comparative study, corruption as a major crime in China, case studies and etiology, domestic, regional and global consequences, and concluding theoretical and policy issues that can inform future research.
