4.0 out of 5 stars Most valuable resource, 30 July 2011
This review is from: Handbook of Internet Crime (Paperback)
This is a very thorough collection (654 pages) of essays on many aspects of Internet crime in the fields of New Media, sociology, criminology, film studies, computer law, forensics, and culture studies. It is arguably the most comprehensive book on cybercrime to date. It deals with Internet-related crime, deviance, policing, law and regulation in the 21st century. The Handbook addresses the range and depth of cybercrime research and scholarship, reflecting on the global nature of cybercrime problems, and the international span of scholarship addressing its challenges.

I particularly enjoyed James Curran, "Reinterpreting Internet history", Barry Sandywell, "On the globalization of crime", Steven Furnell, "Hackers, viruses and malicious software", Dorothy Denning, "Terror's web", Ethel Quayle, "Child pornography", and Maggie Wykes, "Harm, suicide and homicide in cyberspace". The subject matters are diverse and cover a wide range of issues. I also enjoyed the international nature of the book whose contributors come from different nations, with different approaches to cybercrime. The American approach is very different than the rest of the world, and this is well reflected in this rich resource.
