Om boka

Groundbreaking in every sense, Thirteen Ways to Steal a Bicycle lays the foundation for the serious study of the law of theft. No one will be able to write on the subject of property offenses without learning from Stuart Green's book. -- Markus Dubber, University of Toronto Thirteen Ways to Steal a Bicycle is a tour de force-as wonderful as its title and as fascinating as its subject. Theft law is strange and this book tries to explain that strangeness-why it matters so much just exactly how something is stolen, by robbery, larceny, fraud, or other means; why only certain things are considered capable of being stolen; why the theft of electricity, sexual services, or glory are so problematic. This is a work of first-class scholarship, in addition to being just plain fun to read. -- Leo Katz, University of Pennsylvania Theft law, that vital but underexamined part of our jurisprudence, gets its best contemporary treatment from Stuart Green. This book is at once a comprehensive treatise, a pedagogic tool, and a provocative argument of both moral philosophy and social policy. Especially as we focus increasingly on intangible property, Green's book guides us to a fresh inquiry into what ways of taking things-and what things are taken-should lead to criminal condemnation. It will dominate discussions of theft in the coming years. -- Robert Weisberg, Stanford University
