The Art Of The Steal

The Art of the Steal tells the story of several larger-than-life figures - the billionaire tycoon Alfred Taubman; the most powerful woman in the art world, Dede Brooks; and the wily British executive Christopher Davidge - who conspired to cheat their clients out of millions of dollars. It offers an unprecedented look inside this secretive, glamorous, gold-plated industry, describing just how Sotheby's and Christie's grew from clubby, aristocratic businesses into slick international corporations. And it shows how the groundwork for the most recent illegal activities was laid decades before the perpetrators were caught by federal prosecutors.

Heart Of The Steal

Heart Of The Steal

Responsible, disciplined William Fox channeled his love for art and his faith in the rules into being an FBI Art Crimes agent. Right and wrong, justice and injustice-the differences are clear, and Will has spent his career drawing a line between them. Maybe his convictions have cost him relationships, but he's not willing to compromise what he knows is right. Until the night he meets Amory Vaughn. As the head of his family's philanthropic foundation, Vaughn knows very well that being rich and powerful can get him almost anything he wants. And when he meets endearingly grumpy and slightly awkward William Fox, he wants him more than he's wanted anything. Vaughn is used to being desired for his name and his money, but Will doesn't care about either. When Vaughn falls back on old habits and attempts to impress Will by stealing a painting Will admires, their nascent bond blows up in his face. But Vaughn isn't willing to give up on the glimpse of passion he saw the night he took Will apart. Before Will knows it, he's falling for the man he should have arrested, and Vaughn has to realize that some things can't be bought or stolen. Love has to be given freely. But can a man who lives by the rules, and a man who thinks the rules don't apply to him, ever see eye to eye?

The Steal

The Steal

A history of shoplifting, revealing the roots of our modern dilemma. Rachel Shteir's The Steal is the first serious study of shoplifting, tracking the fascinating history of this ancient crime. Dismissed by academia and the mainstream media and largely misunderstood, shoplifting has become the territory of moralists, mischievous teenagers, tabloid television, and self-help gurus. But shoplifting incurs remarkable real-life costs for retailers and consumers. The "crime tax"-the amount every American family loses to shoplifting-related price inflation-is more than $400 a year. Shoplifting cost American retailers $11.7 billion in 2009. The theft of one $5.00 item from Whole Foods can require sales of hundreds of dollars to break even. The Steal begins when shoplifting entered the modern record as urbanization and consumerism made London into Europe's busiest mercantile capital. Crossing the channel to nineteenth-century Paris, Shteir tracks the rise of the department store and the pathologizing of shoplifting as kleptomania. In 1960s America, shoplifting becomes a symbol of resistance when the publication of Abbie Hoffman's Steal This Book popularizes shoplifting as an antiestablishment act. Some contemporary analysts see our current epidemic as a response to a culture of hyper-consumerism; others question whether its upticks can be tied to economic downturns at all. Few provide convincing theories about why it goes up or down. Just as experts can't agree on why people shoplift, they can't agree on how to stop it. Shoplifting has been punished by death, discouraged by shame tactics, and protected against by high-tech surveillance. Shoplifters have been treated by psychoanalysis, medicated with pharmaceuticals, and enforced by law to attend rehabilitation groups. While a few individuals have abandoned their sticky-fingered habits, shoplifting shows no signs of slowing. In The Steal, Shteir guides us through a remarkable tour of all things shoplifting-we visit the Woodbury Commons Outlet Mall, where boosters run rampant, watch the surveillance footage from Winona Ryder's famed shopping trip, and learn the history of antitheft technology. A groundbreaking study, The Steal shows us that shoplifting in its many guises-crime, disease, protest-is best understood as a reflection of our society, ourselves.

The Art Of The Steal Exposing Fraud Vulnerabilities In America S Elections

The Art Of The Steal Exposing Fraud Vulnerabilities In America S Elections

The issue of election fraud remains as contentious as it is relevant. Perhaps you have heard that it isn't happening, or maybe you believe that its existence is undeniable. As a writer who isn't afraid to tackle tough issues, Adrian Norman decided to take on the task of investigating election fraud. While many are aware of reporting that shows limited instances of it, the question of how pervasive it is still needed to be answered. This book provides those answers in no uncertain terms. The Art of the Steal takes a robust look at this subject, giving readers a clear picture of the true nature of America's election architecture. This book addresses the most controversial issues surrounding elections and voter fraud, including ballot harvesting, foreigners voting in U.S. elections, voter identification, voter suppression and much more. Whether you're a policymaker, an elections worker or an ordinary citizen who simply wants their vote to count, this book is an absolute must-read. "Adrian Norman exposes how the crusade to grow government and stifle freedom is often achieved without popular support. The Art of the Steal explains in great detail how the left relies on a win-at-all-costs election strategy rooted in fallacies and fraud to force its agenda on America--seizing power in a mockery of election laws. From vote harvesting to raising dead voters to outright graft and more, this book exposes a terrifying and two-faced assault on democracy."-David Almasi, Vice President of the National Center for Public Policy Research
