Getting Tough on Corporate Crime? Enron and a Year of Corporate Financial Scandals by Jeffrey Reiman and Paul Leighton

Rich Get Richer sources:

Sourcebook contains data about all aspects of criminal justice in the United States (over 600 tables from more than 100 sources). 

Statistical Abstract of the United States from the U.S. Dept of Census is ‘the National Data Book’ containing a collection of statistics on social and economic conditions. 

Uniform Crime Reports published annually by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, based on reports taken by police about crime (and for that reason frequently regarded as a better measure of police behavior than the extent of criminal victimization). 

Bureau of Justice Statistics – a component of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) that is the primary source for criminal justice statistics, including crime, criminal offenders, victims of crime, and the operation of justice systems at all levels of government. Much of the other government generated research is available through the National Criminal Justice Reference Service, which acts as a clearinghouse for reports generated by all bureaus of the DOJ's Office of Justice Programs; the National Institute of Justice; the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention; the Bureau of Justice Assistance; the Office for Victims of Crime; and the Office of National Drug Control Policy. The Social Statistics Briefing Room also provides easy access to current Federal social statistics. 

Other criminology sites:

Criminal Justice in a Democracy: Supplemental Web Readings and Links - from Gary Potter's site

Criminal Justice Cybrary - Excellent and comprehensive set of links by Frank Schmalleger and the Justice Research Association.
