"Peter Grabosky's short book is ideal for an introductory course on cybercrime. It is comprehensive, well organized, up to date, and impeccably clear and accurate. I will certainly require it for my law school course. While he is an Australian scholar, the book has better coverage of U.S. developments than anything I have seen."--James B. Jacobs, NYU School of Law "This is a useful and engaging introduction to the rapidly evolving field of cybercrime. It is strongly recommended as an introductory reader for undergraduate and even postgraduate classes in cybercrime/cybersecurity. The book is mercifully jargon free and would be highly accessible to non-specialists and specialists alike."--Roderic Broadhurst, Australian National University "Cybercrime, from one of the masters of cyber-criminology, gives readers a comprehensive and thoughtful perspective on cybercrimes and their control as they have developed over time. It is highly commended for its comparative breadth and insights."--Michael Levi, Cardiff University
