Product Description

Lying, Cheating, and Stealing: A Moral Theory of White-Collar Crime (Oxford Monographs on Criminal Law and Justice) (9780199225804): Stuart P. Green: Books. Lucid and informative . . . Green's book admirably clears away much of the conceptual underbrush surrounding the idea of white-collar crime. It is a category of wrongdoing, he makes clear, less easily grasped by our ordinary intuitions of right and wrong than, for instance, violent crime. . . Lying, Cheating, and Stealing is strong on moral philosophy, not least in the way it illuminates the gray areas of business conduct. -- Andrew Stark, Wall Street JournalGreen is a legal scholar who is extremely well versed in moral philosophy as well as legal theory. . . . This book is clear, well-written, strongly argued, very well researched, and significantly original. Green's analyses of the concepts he discusses are particularly well-done. I recommend the book to anyone interested in the topics it addresses. -- Thomas L. Carson, Business Ethics QuarterlyGreen has set down a fascinating and ground-breaking case for a close alignment between legal and everyday norms, and has presented an exploration of our thick moral concepts that is interesting in its own right. This is a fine text and one that deserves to be the focal point for future discussion. -- Tony Milligan, Criminal Law and PhilosophyStuart Green's new book, Lying, Cheating, and Stealing: A Moral Theory of White-Collar Crime, is a superbly written book that will be of wide interest to criminal law scholars and practitioners alike. . . . [I]t illuminates a wide a range of criminal offenses . . . and merits careful attention and repeated readings by those with an interest in the field. -- Andrew E. Taslitz, Criminal Justice[Lying, Cheating, and Stealing] is in many ways a Catherine Wheel of ideas on how to theorise [about white collar] offences and their moral content. It is a rich source of ideas for further discussion, and is likely to be a much cited book, providing as it does a collection of provocative perspectives with which to interrogate the boundaries of criminal law in general and to justify individual offences. -- Alex Steel, University of New South Wales Law Review[In]tricately crafted, learned, and frequently illuminating . . . . Lying, Cheating, and Stealing is a wide-ranging and ambitious book. . . . [O]riginal . . . engaging [and] smart, it is well worth reading by anyone interested in white-collar crime, or in the relationship between conventional morality and crime more generally. -- Mitchell Berman, Ohio State Criminal Law ReviewThis is a long needed and pathbreaking consideration of white-collar crime from the perspective of a top-notch legal scholar. Stuart Green has absorbed knowledge in his own specialty and in the social sciences to provide a comprehensive and integrated understanding of behavior that has been capturing headlines in the American media. Tough issues, long bypassed, come in for sophisticated scrutiny. I am certain that Lying, Cheating and Stealing will come to stand as a classic contribution to the study of law-breaking by the privileged. -- Professor Gilbert Geis, University of California, IrvineThis is an important book, which opens up the vast field of 'white-collar crime' to deep normative theorising -- theorising that is informed by an acute grasp of the legal issues and by a thorough philosophical grounding. . . . Th[e] book marks a real advance in normative theorising about the moral foundations of the criminal law: it should provoke theorists to think not just about murder, but about insider trading; not just about rape, but about tax evasion -- and about the wide range of 'regulatory offences' whose moral content has been so under-explored. -- Professor Antony Duff, University of Stirling
