Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This book contains 31 original scholarly articles on all aspects of cybercrime-from emerging global crimes of the Internet, to criminological perspectives on cybercrime to investigating and prosecuting cybercrimes. Offering a collection of previously unpublished works, this book examines emerging global crimes, challenges faced by law enforcement, and the underlying reasons for the rise in such activities. Through a variety of essays, it explores the role of the cybercriminal, the victim, and the cybercriminal's impact on the criminal justice system.

About the Author

Frank Schmalleger, Ph.D., is Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of North Caroline at Pembroke. He holds degrees from the University of Notre Dame and Ohio State University, having earned both a master’s (1970) and a doctorate in sociology (1974) from Ohio State University with a special emphasis in criminology. From 1976 to 1994, he taught criminology and criminal justice courses at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. For the last 16 of those years, he chaired the university’s Department of Sociology, Social Work, and Criminal Justice. The university named him Distinguished Professor in 1991.


         Schmalleger has taught in the online graduate program of the New School for Social Research, helping to build the world’s first electronic classrooms in support of distance leaning through computer telecommunications. As an adjunct professor with Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri, Schmalleger helped develop the university’s graduate program in security administration and loss prevention. He taught courses in that curriculum for more than a decade.


        Frank Schmalleger is the author of numerous articles and more than 30 books, including the widely used Criminal Justice: A Brief Introduction (Prentice Hall, 2008), Criminology Today (Prentice Hall, 2009), and Criminal Law Today (Prentice Hall, 2006).


        Schmalleger is also founding editor of the journal Criminal Justice Studies. He has served as editor for the Prentice Hall series Criminal Justice in the Twenty-First first Century and as imprint adviser for Greenwood Publishing Group’s criminal justice reference series.


         Schmalleger’s philosophy of both teaching and writing can be summed up in these words: “In order to communicate knowledge we must first catch, then hold, a person’s interest — be it student, colleague, or policymaker. Our writing, our speaking, and our teaching must be relevant to the problems facing people today, and they must in some way help solve those problems.” Visit the author’s website at http://www.schmalleger.com.

He is presently a 4.0 doctoral student and student ambassador enrolled in Capella University’s School of Public Safety where he is pursuing his PhD degree in criminal justice.  


           Prior to teaching, he worked for the Northampton County Department of Corrections in Easton, Pennsylvania, where he served in a number of administrative roles, including time spent as the lead Internal Affairs Investigator, Inmate Treatment Division Coordinator, Criminal Records Administrator, and Field Investigations Officer.  He has nearly 20 years of professional field experience working with both juvenile and adult criminal offenders and victims. He has also served as a youth advocate and mentor, a group facilitator for sexual offenders, a drug and alcohol counselor, and most recently as a child custody supervisor Northampton County Pennsylvania’s Orphans Court.

Great book! It provided me with the information that I was looking for and is an easy read. Not every book has all of the information that you may need, but it is definitely a good start.
