The Professional Thief by Chic Conwell Book Summary:
This monograph by a professional thief—with the aid of Edwin H. Sutherland's expert comments and analyses—is a revealing sociological document that goes far to explain the genesis, development, and patterns of criminal behavior. "Chic Conwell," as the author was known in the underworld, gives a candid and forthright account of the highly organized society in which the professional thief lives. He tells how he learned to steal, survive, succeed, and ultimately to pay his debt to society and prepare himself for full and useful citizenship.

The Book Thief by Travis McDade Book Summary:
In the spring of 1994, Daniel Spiegelman shinnied up an abandoned book lift in Columbia University's Butler Library to get to the rare books floor where he then proceeded to dismantle a wall, steal books, reassemble the wall, and sneak back down the shaft. Over a three-month period he did this more than a dozen times. He eventually escaped with the loot - roughly $1.8 million in books, letters and manuscripts - to Europe to sell to collectors. When he was caught in the Netherlands, he tried to avoid extradition to the U.S. by telling the Dutch authorities that he was a financier of the Oklahoma City bombing knowing they wouldn't extradite someone who was facing the death penalty. Eventually the FBI, through some wrangling, got him back to New York, where he finally stood trial for his crimes. In vivid detail, including a retelling of the crimes, dialogue from the court transcripts, and explanations of the legal consequences and intricacies, McDade recounts all the sordid elements of this true crime caper.

Thief River Falls and Pennington County by Caryl J. Bugge Book Summary:
Positioned on the east edges of the Red River Valley and the northern Minnesota Woodlands, Pennington County was settled by farmers of predominantly Scandinavian stock, and census surveys indicate that Thief River Falls was the most Norwegian city in the United States. These settlers broke the soil, planted grain, and traveled to the woodlands for logs with which to build their homes. They floated the trees they cut down the rivers to the mills in Thief River Falls, St. Hilaire, and Crookston. Grain elevators and flour mills stood out against the prairie skyline, and milled logs became ties for the railroads that would transport the lumber and grain to distant cities and ports. The postcards in this book depict the industries, buildings, and people of Pennington County.

Stop, Thief! by Peter Linebaugh Book Summary:
In bold and intelligently written essays, historian Peter Linebaugh takes aim at the thieves of land, the polluters of the seas, the ravagers of the forests, the despoilers of rivers, and the removers of mountaintops. From Thomas Paine to the Luddites and from Karl Marx—who concluded his great study of capitalism with the enclosure of commons—to the practical dreamer William Morris who made communism into a verb and advocated communizing industry and agriculture, to the 20th-century communist historian E. P. Thompson, Linebaugh brings to life the vital commonist tradition. He traces the red thread from the great revolt of commoners in 1381 to the enclosures of Ireland, and the American commons, where European immigrants who had been expelled from their commons met the immense commons of the native peoples and the underground African American urban commons, and all the while urges the ancient spark of resistance.
The Greater Thief by Alexandra Carey Book Summary:

Paul, the Parish Vicar, holds the key to proving his innocence but first he must find the courage to forget himself. Alice will stand face to face with the reality of the men who want Josh dead, and the discovery about his father s past unravels the code that governs his life.

Money Thief by "James E. ""J.L""" Jones Book Summary:
Money Thief traces my path from the age of twelve to sixty-five, through numerous prison terms, heroin addictions, several marriages, and finally, to redemption. Each chapter, or mini-story, chronicles some significant event in my life. While each event did in fact occur, their chronological sequences may not be one-hundred percent accurate. Over the passage of time, coupled with vast amounts of drugs consumed, my recollection of times and places may have been somewhat eroded, By writing this story, I hope to illuminate the fact that no matter how far afield one may wander, redemption is not only possible, with diligence of purpose and focus, it is attainable. The life I led, although influenced by various factors beyond my control, was the product of my bad choices; just as my choice of redemption was the result of my own decisions and actions. My frivolous pursuit to discover and understand the enigmatic world around me has led me on a destructive path of heartache and misery; and broken dreams that seemed beyond repair. Yet, with diligence, hard work, and a constantly evolving mind-set, I have met the awesome challenge of rehabilitation, and have firmly grasped the reins of recovery from the diabolical hands of crime, prison, and drug addiction. -James E. J.J. Jones, Oct., 2010

Tracks of a Thief by Joseph James Book Summary:
The man known as Clark Durbin worked for the Comstock National Bank as a consultant in computer programming for over a year. Durbin was described as approximately 65 years old, had a full head of gray hair and a full beard that was also gray. He was approximately six foot tall and was overweight. He had a cheerful demeanor and sparkling blue eyes—the type of individual one was inclined to instinctively trust. This was of course a disguise. He was actually 48 years old, five foot eleven inches tall, weighed 170 pounds, had brown hair, brown eyes, was clean shaven, and his name was not Mark Durbin. After the fraudulent transfer of fifty million dollars to a numbered account in Zurich, Durbin disappeared, leaving no tracks. Jeremiah Jones, a private investigator with a reputation for finding people who don’t want to be found, was contracted by the bank to recover the money and find the thief. The thief’s ability to make himself seemingly invisible challenged Jeremiah’s tracking skills. Tracking is done in the mind as much or more than by following physical or electronic tracks, which in this case were few. After some misdirection, false trails, and bad assumptions, Jeremiah, at a considerable personal risk, successfully located the money and returned it to the bank. However, identifying the thief proved to be even more challenging.

Confessions Of A Dying Thief by Sam Goodman,Darrell J. Steffensmeier,Jeffery T. Ulmer Book Summary:
**Recipient of the American Society of Criminology's 2006 Michael J. Hindelang Award for a book, published within the past three calendar years, that makes "the most outstanding contribution to research in criminology." **Nominated for the 2007 Outstanding Book award of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. Sam Goodman, was a long-time thief, fence, and quasi-legitimate businessman. He had a criminal career that spanned fifty years, beginning in his mid-teens and ending with his death when he was in his mid-sixties. Confessions of a Dying Thief is an in-depth ethnographic study of Sam and his world based on continuous contact with him for many years, on multiple interviews with his network of associates in crime and business, and on a series of interviews with him shortly before he died. The book updates and greatly expands the case study of Sam Goodman's fencing activity found in Steffensmeier's award-winning 1986 book The Fence: In the Shadow of Two Worlds. The book combines Sam's colorful narrative accounts with substantive commentary by the authors to provide a more nuanced portrayal of criminal careers, illegal enterprise, and the broad landscape comprising the entity called "crime." To more fully understand pathways into and out of crime as well as the social organization of illegal enterprise, the authors propose an integrative learning-opportunity-commitment framework that combines differential association/social learning theory and an extended conceptualization of criminal opportunity with a three-fold theory of commitment to crime. This framework offers an integrated and more complete way of understanding mechanisms that underlie criminal offending and criminal careers. It also recognizes the complexity and scope of the criminal landscape and its embeddedness in the fabric of the larger society, including its criminal justice system. Sam's illness and death are a sobering backdrop throughout the whole book. However, Confessions is not just a dying thief's intimate confessions. Rather, it is a rare and penetrating journey into the dynamics of criminal careers and the social organization of criminal enterprise, as experienced by a veteran thief and fence and his network of key associates.

What About the Thief? by Bishop James C. Bailey, Ph.D. Book Summary:
Both Christians and non-Christians alike are inundated with questions and uncertainties of water baptism. Jesus spoke of water baptism as a Must, [Greek word: dei: it is, (was) necessary]. Jesus said, "Verily, Verily, I say unto thee; You must be born again;" (Greek word: anagennao, pronounced, an-ag-en-nah ́-o), meaning to bear again, or beget again. "Again," is an adverb, meaning, at another time, or on another occasion, repeating what has happened or been done before. Legitimate questions: Is total immersion in water necessary? What is the purpose of immersion water baptism? Does formulation make a difference in baptism, according to the Holy Scriptures? Is baptism just a public confession of faith, somewhat like, coming out of the closet? When do we get the blood washing for our sins? Why do we need to use Jesus' name is baptism? The thief on the cross next to Jesus was never baptized. How did he hang there in the presence of Jesus, who made water baptism mandatory, and make it into the paradise of God without it? According to Jesus in St. John chapter 3, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. Many deceived souls are seduced from the instructions of Christ, exploited through lust of the flesh; distracted through lust of the eyes, tempted from humility through the pride of life, and X'ed from the book of witness and record, by evil performances - dictated by the wiles of the devil. The thief on the cross, next to Jesus, was not born of water and the Holy Ghost was not yet given when he died, according to scriptures.What qualified him? There are biblical accounts of people ending up in heaven or paradise, as well as others ending up in hell...So...What About The Thief?

Thief-Taker General by Gerald Howson Book Summary:
The historical literature of political deviance is sparse. This unusual work, chronicling the history of Jonathan Wild, represents an effort to come to terms with one of the more amazing characters of English social history. Wild was both part of the policy system in eighteenth-century England, and also one of the most adroit criminals of the age. In the 1720s, London suffered the worst crime waves in its history. Civic corruption took place on a staggering scale. The government's answer was to pay a bounty for the capture of robbers, thus creating a class of professional informers. Wild was applauded as the most efficient thief hunter and gang breaker in British society; but his own posse of thief catchers was basically a front behind which he was able to control the underground world, through a complex system of blackmail, perjury, and terror which the book details. All who opposed him were betrayed to the law, and in the struggle for power Wild sacrificed several hundred of his own people to the hangman. No one since his time, with the exception of Lavrenti Beria of the late Stalin era GPU so nearly succeeded in bringing the underworld under the control of one system of power. At one level, this is a biography of the world's first supercriminal. At another, it is a sociology of criminal behavior and its political consequences. Howson sheds fresh light, not only on a figure who has become famous in literature, but more important, on the entire structure of gang life. The book is written "as a "terrifying and fascinating study of a historical epoch; it also offers a completely fresh picture of the birth of modern organized-crime families as part of modern organized political systems.
