This book is an essential companion to understanding the
causes, processes and consequences of misconduct at
work.These affairs likely received extensive media
attention partly because new forms of media (most
importantly, forms of media made possible by the
expansion of the Internet) were emerging that facilitated
the dissemination and amplification of news about
misconduct. Regardless, the attention these episodes
received contributed to the perception that
organizational misconduct is increasing in frequency,
scale, and complexity, suggesting systemic causes and
precipitating catastrophic consequences.
