'White-collar-crime' is a term that only recently came into use in New Zealand. But as Graeme Hunt illustrates in this highly readable book, sharp practice and outright cons have been part of New Zealand's society since the nation's founding - starting with the first treasurer George Cooper. Hustlers, Rogues and Bubble Boys profiles some of the most memorable characters who have followed Cooper's path into white-collar mischief. Along with convicted con artists and out-and-out hustlers are almost likable rogues, bubble boys brought low by share-market shifts and business people who broke the rules of corporate propriety if not the law.
