Book review 'Policing the Markets: Inside the Black Box of Securities Enforcement'

N Dorn

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewAcademic


James Williams’ book on Policing the Markets seeks to understand regulatory enforcement – and its limitations – in the field of financial services in Canada. The book is positioned so as to attract people working in the markets, especially those with compliance roles, as well as lawyers, regulators themselves and social scientists... [This is] an informative and stimulating book [which] presents a particular provocation for criminologists, given our relative neglect of financial markets as sites for regulation and enforcement. Certainly the ongoing crisis shows these questions can no longer be left to sectoral specialists.
