White-collar crime' is a term that has come into only recent usage in New Zealand, but as Graeme Hunt illustrates in this highly readable book, cons and frauds have been part of New Zealand society since the nation's founding. Hustlers, Rogues & Bubble Boys profiles some of the memorable characters who followed the deceitful ways of the nation's first treasurer, George Cooper, among them Milan Brych, Paul White, Amy Bock, William Larnach, Sir Joseph Ward and Keith Hancox. Along with convicted con-artists and out-and-out hustlers are almost-likeable rogues, bubble boys brought low by sharemarket shakedowns, and businesspeople who broke the spirit if not the letter of the law. Richly illustrated with historical and contemporary photos, Hustlers, Rogues & Bubble Boys offers the best available account of this serious, frequently misunderstood topic.
