"Criminologist Conklin's engaging and informative study of crime in the art world is the most thorough examination of this complex subject to appear in years." Booklist


Criminologist Conklin (Tufts U.) looks at the full range of crime involving works of art: forgery, fraud, theft, smuggling, and vandalism. In addition to considering the motives of thieves, he looks at the way art theft is socially organized: the types of thefts that are committed, the ways thieves locate art to steal and how they gain access to it, their use of insiders and fronts, and the way they launder stolen art.
