This is an easy to grasp text. If you are not familiar with the total Cyber world, then this is the book for you. It provides a great overview and breaks it down into specifics. I highly recommend this text for those interested in the field of Homeland Security and anyone new to the IT profession.

The best college textbook I have ever read. It's just simple to read and informative without that convoluted wording
Astonished - Great depth, excellent research, engaging Feb. 12 2006
By James Moore - Published on
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.
