Green Receives Praise for Book on White Collar Crime

Professor Stuart Green’s pioneering book, Lying, Cheating, and Stealing: A Moral Theory of White Collar Crime, is now available in paperback version from Oxford University Press.  

Just a year old, the book is the first in-depth study of its kind and examines the moral foundations of white-collar criminal offenses such as fraud, insider trading, bribery, and tax evasion. To give emphasis to the text, Green examines several high profile contemporary cases.

A review in The Wall Street Journal said, “Mr. Green’s book admirably clears away much of the conceptual underbrush surrounding the idea of white-collar crime.” The book was nominated for an award by Scribes, the American Society of Legal Writers and will soon be translated into Italian.

He is currently working with Harvard University Press to publish a new book, tentatively titled Property, Crime, and Morals: Theft Law in the Information Age.

Green is the Law Center’s L.B. Porterie Professor of Law. He is a graduate of Yale Law.
