"Sophisticated, accessible, and compact, this volume delivers on the promise of the series of which it is part… It will be a required citation in the field and benefit a wide range of criminologists—those who run race and gender separately and those who do not see race and gender as relevant to their work. Highly recommended."

"Offering a nice blend of economics, sociology, and ethics, Ruggiero manages to provide not only an interesting discourse on universal theories of elite crimes, but also a tightly packaged book on the subject of power in general, wasting no words in the process. Of interest to criminologists studying white-collar crime, as well as scholars focused on studying the power elite. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, faculty." -L. L. Hansen, Western New England University, CHOICE Reviews, November 2015

"This is an invaluable addition to either a library of gang research literature or a methodology book collection, particularly with grounded theory, qualitative leanings. Better yet, it offers a history of gang research methodology. One does not have to be a critical theory scholar or methodologist to appreciate Brotherton's contribution to the field. Summing Up: Highly recommended" - L. L. Hansen, Western New England University, CHOICE Reviews November 2015
