In the world of law enforcement art and antiquity crime has in the past usually assumed a place of low interest and priority. That situation has now slowly begun to change on both the local and international level as criminals, encouraged in part by the record sums now being paid for art treasures, are now seeking to exploit the art market more systematically by means of theft, fraud and looting. In this collection academics and practitioners from Australasia, Europe and North America combine to examine the challenges presented to the criminal justice system by these developments. Best practice methods of detecting, investigating, prosecuting and preventing such crimes are explored. This book will be of interest and use to academics and practitioners alike in the areas of law, crime and justice.

In the great tradition of Thomas Hoving’s national bestseller, Making The Mummies Dance, the fascinating memoir by the curator who breathed life into museums At once a field guide on how to appreciate museums—and the art within its walls—and an ebullient and entertaining memoir, renowned museum director Karl Katz’s The Exhibitionist shows how he made museums inviting, educational, living and vibrant. In his endeavors to make museums contemporary and relevant, Katz travels the globe: as an archaeologist in the newly-formed state of Israel to his covert entry, using forged documents, into the overly anti-Semitic Egypt of the late 1950s, through the New York City of the ‘60s and ‘70s and into the present day. A man who always stood up for the museum visitor, Katz takes readers through his brilliant and accomplished life. A book for readers of history, art criticism, collectors, curators, administrators and students, The Exhibitionist is filled with a wide range of discussions both cultural and personal. Katz shows readers how Biblical archaeology played a crucial role in the cause of Israel nationalism, while also recounting his time trying to bring broadcast television and home-video technology to museums in the 1980s. Perfect for anyone who has ever been captivated by a well-curated exhibit.

Summer in the City takes a clear look at John Lindsay’s tenure as mayor of New York City during the tumultuous 1960s, when President Lyndon Johnson launched his ambitious Great Society Program. Providing an even-handed reassessment of Lindsay’s legacy and the policies of the period, the essays in this volume skillfully dissect his kaleidoscope of progressive ideas and approach to leadership—all set in a perfect storm of huge demographic changes, growing fiscal stress, and an unprecedented commitment by the federal government to attain a more equal society. Compelling archival photos and a timeline give readers a window into the mythic 1960s, a period animated by civil rights marches, demands for black power, antiwar demonstrations, and a heroic intergovernmental effort to redistribute national resources more evenly. Written by prize-winning authors and leading scholars, each chapter covers a distinct aspect of Lindsay’s mayoralty (politics, race relations, finance, public management, architecture, economic development, and the arts), while Joseph P. Viteritti’s introductory and concluding essays offer an honest and nuanced portrait of Lindsay and the prospects for shaping more balanced public priorities as New York City ushers in a new era of progressive leadership. The volume’s sharp focus on the controversies of the Mad Men era will appeal not only to older readers who witnessed its explosive events, but also to younger readers eager for a deeper understanding of the time. A progressive Republican with bold ideals and a fervent belief in the American Dream, Lindsay strove to harness the driving forces of modernization, democratization, acculturation, inclusion, growth, and social justice in ways that will inform our thinking about the future of the city. -- Mike Wallace, Pulitzer Prize–winning coauthor of GothamDick Ravitch, Former Lieutenant Governor of New York, 2009–2010
