Throwing the book: The recent evolution of federal punishment for "Cultural heritage" crimes

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    Though the United States Code had long recognized the importance of "objects of cultural heritage," it was not until November 2002, that the seriousness of rare book, map, or manuscript theft was reflected in federal sentencing guidelines. This article describes several categories of theft that are now recognized as being of a serious nature.
