Rick A. Matthews, Ohio University

ABSTRACT
Vareties of state-corporate crime have almost exclusively been analyzed by using contemporary examples (e.g., the crash of ValuJet Flight 592; the fire in Hamlet, NC). Such crimes have generally been defined as the outcome of normative state practices and corporate goals. In this paper we examine the relationship(s) between corporations and the criminal state (i.e., Nazi Germany) in an attempt to assess what differences exist between normative states and criminal states in regard to their relationship(s) with corporations.
