Some brief overview of book

Bandits, burglars and thieves have always been a mainstay of society. From pickpockets to pirates, bank robbers to bushrangers, this is an encyclopaedia of theft, one of the world's oldest professions. More than 400 entries detail history's most famous robberies from around the world, the thieves who executed them, and the lawmen who brought them to justice.

Topical entries are featured, such as art theft, bungled capers, highway robbery, robberies in film and fiction, social bandits, safecracking, and robbery as terrorism. The volume also includes more than 70 photographs, a number of which are mugshots of top bank robbers.
