Compliance: Regulation and Environment Summary


Compliance: Regulation and Environment by Bridget M. Hutter (Lecturer in Sociology, Lecturer in Sociology, London School of Economics)

Regulation touches upon areas of vital importance to our lives and the economy, but it is still very much a 'grey area' of criminal law and social control, subject to very little academic scrutiny. This book combines an analysis of the broader structural factors which influence regulation and its definition at the everyday level with a discussion of empirical data, to reach a thorough understanding of the subject. The empirical data focuses on the regulation of economic activities in the areas of occupational health and safety and the environment in England and Wales in the 1980s.

Compliance: Regulation and Environment Reviews


this is a vintage Rolls-Royce of a book - a quality product in a traditional style that is not only bulky and impressive but likely to be an appreciating classic of its type. Christopher Hood, New Institutionalism and Organizational Theory, A Review Article.
Sesitively framed, well-written and impressively throrough, this study is likely to be a standard work on regulatory compliance for some time to come. * Christopher Hood, New Institutionalism and Organizational Theory, A Review Article. *
Anyone who thinks regulatory 'compliance' is a clear-cut phenomenon, capable of being easily defined and measured, has been reading too many self-congratulatory reports by regulatory agencies and needs to read this book. * Christopher Hood, New Institutionalism and Organisational Theory: A Review Article. *
