Crime and the computer
Computer-related crime is a topic which has attracted great interest in recent years. Crime and the Computer examines in depth the novel issues which arise in criminal law, evidence, jurisdiction and criminology when a computer is selected as the tool or the target for crime. The author examines the international responses to computer-related crime, especially the major legislative changes made in the United States, but the main focus is upon the shortcomings of English law in this area. Crime and the Computer will provide a valuable resource for lawyers, and computing professionals and business people who require a thorough and balanced account of a pervasive problem.
