About this product
- DescriptionIn 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 w slowly begun to change on both the local and international level as criminals, encouraged in part by the record sums w being paid for art treasures, are w 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.
