“The History of Loot an Stolen Art”

This art history book examines the motivation behind the actions of the various looters, whether greed is engrained in human nature, and what changes have occurred over the centuries both in looting and attitudes towards post-conflict restitution.

“Lindsay's book is supported by extensive research material from archives and contemporary sources, providing both factual information and exciting anecdotes about each period. This variety of information is blended together to produce an accessible and well-written book, which should be of interest to both the academic and general reader. The text is richly illustrated with color reproductions and black and white archival photographs, turning the reading process into a brilliant visual journey through the history of art and power.”
