CFA: SAGE Encyclopedia of White-Collar & Corporate Crime (2nd Ed.)
PLEASE REPLY TO:
We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the SAGE Encyclopedia of
White-Collar and Corporate Crime (2nd Edition) a 2-volume reference. We are
making assignments with a submission deadline of July 31, 2012.
Since the first edition of the SAGE Encyclopedia of White-Collar &
Corporate Crime was produced in 2003, the number and severity of these
crimes have risen to the level of calamity: Many experts attribute the
near- Depression of 2008 to white-collar malfeasance, namely crimes of
greed and excess by bankers and financial institutions. In the 8 years
since the first edition was produced we have also seen the largest Ponzi
scheme in history (Maddoff), an ecological disaster caused by British
Petroleum and its subcontractors (Gulf Oil Spill), and U.S. Defense
Department contractors operating like vigilantes in Iraq (Blackwater).
Indeed, white-collar criminals have been busy and the second edition of
this encyclopedia captures what has been going on in the news and behind
the scenes with approximately 100 new articles and updates to the previous
edition. In a thorough reappraisal of the white-collar and corporate crime
scene, the second edition builds on the first edition to complete the
criminal narrative in an outstanding reference ready for publication in
This comprehensive project will be published by SAGE Reference and will be
marketed to academic and public libraries as a print and digital product
available to students via the library=B9s electronic services. The General
Editor, who will be reviewing each submission to the project, is Dr.
Lawrence M. Salinger, Associate Professor of Criminology/Sociology at
Arkansas State University.
If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference, it is
a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature,
redefining criminal and sociological issues in today’s terms. Moreover, it
can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your
publishing credits. SAGE Publications offers an honorarium ranging from
SAGE book credits for smaller articles up to a free set of the printed
product or access to the online product for contributions totaling 10,000
words or more.
The list of available articles is already prepared, and as a next step we
will e-mail you the Article List (Excel file) from which you can select
topics that best fit your expertise and interests. Additionally, Style and
Submission Guidelines will be provided that detail article specifications.
