Cyberspace Crime is a collection of key texts that have contributed towards, or have reflected, the various debates that have taken place over crime and the internet during that past decade. The texts are organised into three parts. The first contains a number of viewpoints and perspectives that facilitate our broader understanding of cyberspace crime/ cybercrimes. The second part addresses each of the major types of cybercrime - trespass/ hacking/cracking, thefts/ deceptions, obscenities/ pornography, violence - and illustrate their associated problems of definition and resolution. The third and final part contains a selection of texts that each deal with the impact of cyberspace crime upon specific criminal justice processes: the police and the trial process.
