Reviews

"...Although the book is presented as a reference work for practitioners, academics and scholars worldwide, I would agree with the authors' assertion that it is written to appeal to a much wider audience. Some content is great and really accessible. The chapter on the formidable challenges posed by cybercrimes is thought-provoking, the condensed history of the development of malicious code is informative, and the summary of the international dimensions of cybercrime is also very engaging... I think it will provide any reader a greater understanding of the world we now live in, and many will enjoy it a lot more than they expect at the outset." (John D McGonagle, in: theJournalonline May 2011, p. 51)
