Cybercriminology

Can previous criminological theories and findings be transferred to the rules of digital space? This book brings together contributions by authors from different areas of criminology and other forensic science who explore this important question from different perspectives. This book thus traces current developments in the field of digital crimes and digital police work and examines the extent to which criminological phenomena and approaches in the digital space have to be redesigned and designed in terms of their own cybercriminology.
