This book certainly sounds interesting. It is titled, "The Best Way to Rob a Bank is to Own One." It's an April 2005 book published by University of Texas Press and is authored by William K. Black, the "Interim Executive Director of the University of Texas at Austin Institute of Fraud Studies and Assistant Professor of Public Affairs at the LBJ School of Public Affairs." In an email Bill described the book to me as discussing:
"'control fraud' (fraud by those who control corporations and use them as 'weapons' of fraud and 'shields' against prosecution. It gives an insider/academic account of the regulators' war with the S & L control frauds during the debacle."
