   schema:reviewBody ""Drawing on both theory and major case studies, this book provides a much needed sociological and comparative analysis of the world of the manager in the context of misconduct within business organizations." "Part One critically examines the existing literature and dominant perspectives. Maurice Punch challenges the view that businessmen break the law 'for the good of the company', highlighting a number of recent incidents in which executives have been discovered looting their own corporations. Part Two presents 10 major cases which illustrate and amplify the arguments in the book. The cases are designed and presented in a form suitable for classroom teaching. Part Three presents a new organizational behaviour perspective that scrutinizes the irrational, even pathological, features of the managerial world, and the ways in which these distort decision-making." "As a broad conceptual analysis of business deviance - it causes, effects and possible solutions - combined with a rich collection of case examples, Dirty Business will be an invaluable resource for practitioners, students and academics in management, organization studies, sociology and criminology."--Jacket." ;
