About the Author

Stuart Green is Professor of Law and Justice Nathan L. Jacobs Scholar, Rutgers School of Law, Newark. A graduate of Yale Law School, he has served as a Fulbright Distinguished Scholar in the United Kingdom and as a Visiting Professor at the University of Michigan Law School. He is co-editor, along with R.A. Duff, of Defining Crimes: Essays on the Special Part of the Criminal Law, published by OUP in 2005.


'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 *
