"Quite simply, this is the most comprehensive academic resource on Ponzi schemes to date. It is invaluable to not only criminologists, legal experts, and students, but also should be required reading for those in the general public with financial investments. From detailed typologies of Ponzi schemes, to economic trends that facilitate them, to characteristics of both victims and perpetrators, Springer has provided us with a veritable encyclopedia of these devastating frauds."

Colleen P. Eren, William Paterson University, author of Bernie Madoff and the Crisis: The Public Trial of Capitalism.

"Springer provides an insightful analysis of Ponzi schemes in the United States that examines politics, policies, case histories, victims, offenders and legal responses. The book sheds renewed light on a costly and widespread form of white-collar crime, and will be a valuable resource for practitioners and scholars alike."

Henry N. Pontell, Distinguished University Professor, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Irvine
