9780802068286: Everybody Does It!: Crime by the Public

This is the first book to explore in detail crime committed by the general public. Thomas Gabor challenges the prevailing stereotype of the criminal by documenting the extent to which ordinary citizens (those who are not habitually in conflict with the law) violate the law, exhibit dishonesty, or engage in actions harmful to their fellow citizens. He shows that so-called respectable citizens account for a large proportion of many kinds of crime: theft, fraud, tax evasion, assault, sex offences, business scams, political and corporate crime, environmental crime, technological crime, and mass lawlessness such as looting and vigilantism. He also discusses crime by police and other authorities in the justice system. Case studies provide concrete examples and raise crucial questions about law enforcement.

By discussing the justifications and excuses ordinary people provide for their transgressions, Gabor draws a parallel between those justifications and the ones provided by chronic or hard-core criminals. He shows, through experimental and other evidence, that members of the public are often not firmly committed to society's laws or the legal system. Using existing theories in conjunction with an original, interdisciplinary theoretical model, he shows why criminality is so widespread, and why it varies from person to person, and from one milieu to another. He shows why some crimes are more prevalent than others, and why some people are more immune to being labelled and processed as criminals within the criminal justice system. He concludes with a discussion of approaches for dealing with widespread criminality.

About the Author:

Thomas Gabor is a professor in the Department of Criminology, University of Ottawa.

Review:

'(Gabor) takes on a tough foe, the three-headed dragon of ignorance, arrogance and hypocrisy.'

(Jim Coyle Hamilton Spectator)

'Everybody Does It! is one of those rare books that deserves the widest possible readership.'

(The Prince George Citizen)

'Everybody Does It! Is richly empirical, effectively building on dozens of research studies of common types of crime... Gabor's thorough account of the various types of common "crime by the public" is useful and thought provoking.'

(Sidney Littarring The Canadian Bar Review)

'The author moves beyond the traditional criminological approach of utilizing one theory or playing theories off against each other, choosing instead to combine various facets of a number of different theories so as to provide a more complete explanation of the crime.'

(Stephen W. Baron Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology)
