Product Description

This short film illustrates how crimes committed by powerful social actors differ in terms of both their type - the distinction between white-collar, corporate and state crime for example - and extent; how and why such criminality differs from the criminal behaviour of the relatively powerless. 

The film features David Whyte talking about and illustrating some of the problems sociologists face in defining and researching this particular area of social life.
