In this first edition hardcover of "The Professional Fence", Klockars relates the first and only life history of a professional fence acquired through direct contact with a dealer in stolen goods (aka 'Vincent Swaggi') during more than a year of secret personal interviews. Reading like a novel, this Pulitzer-nominated case study makes an important contribution to the literature of modern criminology and sociology, serving as the basis of most of what is known today of the basic patterns of action employed by all successful professional fences - "The Prime Source" in this arena.
