For all courses covering computer crime at community colleges, universities, and police academies; no previous exposure to technological studies is required.

COMPUTER FORENSICS AND CYBER CRIME: AN INTRODUCTION, 3/e is the only book on computer crime that has been widely adopted by both academics and practitioners, this pioneering text thoroughly discusses computer crime in non-technological language while presenting all basic modern procedures needed to investigate and prosecute it. Organized in thirteen chapters, it enables professors to address one chapter per week in a typical semester. The author fully covers both forensic and legal issues, addressing the First and Fourth Amendments, US Patriot Act, international collaborations, identity theft, and much more. This significantly rewritten Third Edition builds on earlier editions' proven pedagogy, adding up-to-the-minute coverage of emerging issues ranging from SmartPhones, GPS navigation, and cloud computing to cyberbullying and cyberterrorism.
