Computer technologies in general and the Internet in particular have had a massive impact on the type and scope of offences being committed, and on the organization of the policing and detection of criminal and deviant behaviour. Yet the complexities of these new developments and their wider social impact are little understood. This book has the aim of shedding light on the nature of the relationship between crime, deviance and the Internet. The book: encompasses both criminological and sociological approaches in understanding ""cyber deviance"" as well as cyber-crime; explores the potential of the Internet to construct identities, in particular criminal identities; makes an important contribution to the debate on this rapidly expanding area and at the same time is ideal as a teaching text for courses on the Internet and society; and includes chapters on different types of criminal and/or deviant behaviour and its relation to the Net.
