Cybercrime and society

£11.99

Product description

Criminology has been rather slow to recognise the importance of cyberspace in changing the nature and scope of offending and victimisation, and a comprehensive introductory textbook on cybercrime and its social implications is long overdue. One of the many strengths of Majid Yar's book is that it avoids 'techy' jargon and unites criminological and sociological perspectives in discussions of cybercrime, cyber-deviance and cyber-freedoms. Yar successfully de-mystifies a subject that causes many criminologists to feel out of their depth (or at least their comfort zone). Cybercrime & Society should be the first point of reference for any student of new media and crime' - Dr Yvonne Jewkes, Reader in Criminology, The Open University An engaging book full of lively discussion and careful explanation of the issues. Majid Yar manages to achieve the seemingly impossible task of balancing theory with action. I shall certainly recommend it to my own cybercrime students' -Professor David S. Wall, Head of University of Leeds Law School, Professor of Criminal Justice and Information Technology Cybercrime and Society provides a clear, systematic, critical introduction to current debates about cybercrime. It locates the phenomenon in the wider contexts of social, political, cultural and economic change. It is the first book to draw upon perspectives spanning criminology, sociology, law, politics and cultural studies to examine the whole range of cybercrime issues, including: " computer hacking " cyber-terrorism " media 'piracy' " financial fraud and identity theft " online stalking " hate speech " pornography " surveillance The book takes an international perspective, drawing on research, case studies and examples from the UK, the US, Europe and beyond. It includes chapter outlines and summaries, further reading and a glossary. The book is an essential resource for all students and academics interested in cybercrime and the future of the Internet.
