Description

A unique and comprehensive overview of the field and its current issues, Cybercriminology analyzes cybercrimes through the lens of criminology. Featuring an accessible, conversational writing style, it first discusses traditional criminological theories of criminal behavior and then analyzes how these theories-the existing literature and empirical studies-can be applied to explain cybercrimes. The text also introduces students to types of cybercrime, the nature and extent of cybercrime in the U.S. and abroad, and victim and offender behavior in the online environment. FEATURES * Real-world case studies and examples demonstrate the extent and complexity of cybercriminology * Boxed features present compelling research topics and scenarios * Review questions stimulate classroom discussions * An Ancillary Resource Center contains an Instructor's Manual, a Test Bank, and PowerPoint lecture outlines
