"I would describe this book as a very good inter-disciplinary approach to cybercrime, and explain that such an approach is essential in dealing with this very complex type of criminal activity. I would say the book provides an excellent introduction into what cybercrime is, why we need to be concerned about it and what can, and is, being done about it." - Susan Brenner, University of Dayton "In describing this text to a colleague I would say it is the best work I have read on cybercrime; that it is truly multidisciplinary; that the historical discussion is fascinating; and that it is appropriate for academics and practitioners. In sum, this is a major contribution to the emerging study of cybercrime and information security." -Charles Wellford, University of Maryland STUDENT REVIEWS "The questions posed througout the chapter provide the reader with an opportunity to contemplate whether he truly understands what he just read, instead of having to wait until the end of the chapter like most textbooks." John Shim "When dealing with abstract concepts, nothing brings clarity like a concrete example, and thsi book does that." Scott Andrews "I enjoy how the book poses questions as a way to provoke thought from students." Scott Andrews "The major aspects about this text that I liked are that it gives out examples of different situations to help the reader understand what the author is trying to say." Anonymous "I liked the section on different Acts, as a computer science student they are interesting to me because they cover my field. Normally, students are not aware of these laws, and it's the lack of knowledge that sometimes leads those students to committ things which they believe are right but in reality they are wrong." Asim Goheer "I like the way that each topic in the reading is divided into sections where it can be easily located." Cheng Lin "The text was informative and more enjoyable to read than most other textbooks I've encountered." Andrew McLeanVom Verlag:
