Review

'This 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. This 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.' (Professor Antony Duff, University of Stirling)

'This 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 behaviour 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 priveleged. ' (Professor Gilbert Geiss, University of California, Irvine)

'Mr. Green's book admirably clears away much of the conceptual underbrush surrounding the idea of white-collar crime.... "Lying, Cheating, and Stealing" is strong on moral philosophy, not least in the way it illuminates the gray areas of business conduct. ... [it] will be helpful to anyone thinking about such cases [as Kenneth Lay's].' (Andrew Stark, Wall Street Journal, 27 July 2006)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An important contribution to the field of white-collar crime and counter fraud study with a view on the US criminal law and justice system. Perfect for cross-functional and comparative analysis, the book presents interesting perspectives and synergies in terms of ethics. Through the book, the author seeks to resolve questions concerning the human morality of white-collar crime, by defining concepts such as good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice, justice and crime; and synthesise his findings into an interesting moral theory. A solid blend of meta-ethics, normative ethics and applied ethics, this work is an invaluable resource for students and critical thinkers. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Through and timely 11 July 2012
By Sam Mandel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
With intellectual property becoming a more important part of our overall economic wealth, Professor Green's subtle and through review of how theft and related legal concepts should apply to intangible property will be helpful not only to lawyers and academics but also to policy makers. Although closely reasoned, his arguments are accessible to the thoughtful ordinary reader and deserve a wide audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars White Collar Crime Student 28 April 2006
By Patrick Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a detailed, well written and easily readible work on the core white collar crimes. From perjury to bribery to obstruction of justice Lying, Cheating, and Stealing is a clever and timely comment on the crimes of the privileged. I read the book for a White Collar Crime seminar at Michigan Law School, which Professor Green taught. Frankly, both the book and the class were worth the price of admission.
