About this book

The theft, trafficking, and falsification of cultural property and cultural heritage objects are crimes of a particularly complex nature, which often have international ramifications and significant economic consequences. Organized criminal groups of various types and origins are involved in these illegal acts.

The book Crime in the Art and Antiquities World has contributions both from researchers specializing in the illegal trafficking of art, and representatives of international institutions involved with prevention and detection of cultural property-related crimes, such as Interpol and UNESCO.

This innovative volume also includes an Appendix of the existing legal texts, i.e. international treaties, conventions, and resolutions, which have not previously been available in a single volume.

This work is a unique and useful reference for scholars and private and public bodies alike.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“By offering this book, Manacorda and Chappell make accessible a synopsis of contemporary arguments, introduce readers to the primary scholars in this field, and assemble all relevant international instruments and significant documents associated with efforts to protect cultural property. Everyone working to combat transnational crime should read this volume. It will be of particular interest to scholars investigating the illicit nature of market systems.” (Gisela Bichler, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books, March, 2012)
