Cybercrime and Society provides a clear, systematic, and 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, and surveillance.
The book takes an international perspective, drawing on research, case studies, and examples from the U.K., the U.S., 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.
