Franchising is an increasingly important global business model, but how well protected are franchisees –the people who operate and make any franchise system really work? In this book, the author explores the many different roles that franchisees play in modern business, and their importance to the success of every franchise arrangement. As well as providing a comprehensive overview and analysis of the legal context of modern franchising relationships, and the different measures taken to deal with franchisee concerns, the author examines the “weak links” in contemporary franchising – the areas where franchisees are rarely appropriately protected. Despite all the rhetoric, franchisees remain awkwardly accommodated within the law, and they are in need of attention through improved consumer protection, corporate governance, and business insolvency/bankruptcy laws. Franchisees As Consumers examines why franchisees remain more vulnerable under the law than employees and suppliers, and what can be done about it.

Since the first edition of the Encyclopedia of White Collar and Corporate Crime was produced in 2004, the number and severity of these crimes have risen to the level of calamity, so much so that many experts attribute the near-Depression of 2008 to white-collar malfeasance, namely crimes of greed and excess by bankers and financial institutions. Whether the perpetrators were prosecuted or not, white-collar and corporate crime came near to collapsing the U.S. economy. In the 7 years since the first edition was produced we have also seen the largest Ponzi scheme in history (Maddoff), an ecological disaster caused by British Petroleum and its subcontractors (Gulf Oil Spill), and U.S. Defense Department contractors operating like vigilantes in Iraq (Blackwater). White-collar criminals have been busy, and the Second Edition of this encyclopedia captures what has been going on in the news and behind the scenes with new articles and updates to past articles.
