Editorial Reviews


“I would describe this book as a very good inter-disciplinary approach to cybercrime, and explain that such an approach is essential in dealing with this very complex type of criminal activity.  I would say the book provides an excellent introduction into what cybercrime is, why we need to be concerned about it and what can, and is, being done about it.”
— Susan Brenner, University of Dayton  

“In describing this text to a colleague I would say it is the best work I have read on cybercrime; that it is truly multidisciplinary; that the historical discussion is fascinating; and that it is appropriate for academics and practitioners.  In sum, this is a major contribution to the emerging study of cybercrime and information security.”
—Charles Wellford, University of Maryland





"The questions posed througout the chapter provide the reader with an opportunity to contemplate whether he truly understands what he just read, instead of having to wait until the end of the chapter like most textbooks."

John Shim


"When dealing with abstract concepts, nothing brings clarity like a concrete example, and thsi book does that."

Scott Andrews


"I enjoy how the book poses questions as a way to provoke thought from students."

Scott Andrews


"The major aspects about this text that I liked are that it gives out examples of different situations to help the reader understand what the author is trying to say."



"I liked the section on different Acts, as a computer science student they are interesting to me because they cover my field. Normally, students are not aware of these laws, and it's the lack of knowledge that sometimes leads those students to committ things which they believe are right but in reality they are wrong."

Asim Goheer


"I like the way that each topic in the reading is divided into sections where it can be easily located."

Cheng Lin


"The text was informative and more enjoyable to read than most other textbooks I've encountered."

Andrew McLean



From the Back Cover

Understanding and Managing Cybercrime provides an overview of cybercrime and the legal, social, and technical issues that cybercrime presents. This text focuses on the challenges having to do with emergence, prevention, and control of high-tech crime. It takes a multidisciplinary perspective by tying together various disciplines–information technology, the sociology/anthropology of cyberspace, computer security, deviance, law, criminal justice, risk management, and strategic thinking.

Format: Paperback
This is a unique book. I would have liked the book anyway, as I work at the same university as Dr. McQuade, and we talk on occaision about information security. So I want you to know my bias. But I am not talking about liking it, I am talking about being astonished.

Dr. McQuade wrote the book because he needed a really good book for his Computer Crime class. He was squirreled away for a couple of years, and now I know why.

The book motivates the average reader and student through being real and relevant.

The book calls to the aspiring and excellent student to do deeper, as deep as they want. The references, indexing, and especially "Critical Thinking" questions at the end of each chapter are amazing.

Dr. McQuade also leads by example. He cites frequently from his groundbreaking research. He leads in 2 areas, first he shows what rigorous social science research is about. He also inspires by giving an example of doing research, when there is not much to build on.

For information security professionals that know the law, but might not know it as deep as someone outside law enforcement, the chapter on relevant law is worth the price of the book.

Also, as an information security professional, I often forget to ask the question "Why?" The "Theoretical and Social Perspectives on Cybercrime" took me deeper than I have been before. It is a bit chilling to understand that a generation has been left alone with computers with little or no guidance on the ethics of responsible computing.

And if that weren't enough, the "CyberTales" and the cartoons actually make the book fun.

Had to have this textbook for one of my classes. Unfortunately, unless you have a fairly extensive knowledge or how computers and networks work, this book won't make much sense. I'm a Criminal Justice major, not a Computer Science major, but I'm not ignorant about computers. This books is way over my head.
