Dot.cons: crime, deviance and identity on the internet
Willan, 2002 - Computers - 200 pages
Computer technologies in general and the Internet in particular have had a massive impact on the type and scope of offences being committed, and on the organisation of the policing and detection of criminal and deviant behaviour. Yet the complexities of these new developments and their wider social impact are little understood. This book has the aim of shedding light on the nature of the relationship between crime, deviance and the Internet.
