    Spends a lot of time rending its garments over demonic privacy advocates and the promise of developing technologies to victimize the helpless (cue violins). (Did you know how much the Electronic Frontier Foundation loves terrorists? well, they do.) Meanwhile, a lot of its technological information is laughably out of date. One example: Published in 2004 and revised in 2009, the Second Edition refers to "Online service providers like CompuServe." Gimme a break.

One example: Published in 2004 and revised in 2009, the Second Edition refers to "Online service providers like CompuServe." Gimme a break. CompuServe was an also-ran by late last century, and IT ACTUALLY CLOSED IN 2009. Minor but telling errors like that are littered throughout the text, indicating that even in 2004 the author was groping around in the dark with some aspects of online culture, and by 2009 she was completely lost in the woods. I shudder to think that today's law enforcement professionals are being trained with this bizarre tome.

Britz writes an introductory undergraduate survey textbook for computer forensics and cyber crime. Also, there is a helpful bibliography and alphabetical subject index. In 13 chapters, the author describes general trends in computer forensics and cyber crime with US case studies. Chapter topics include: terminology; history; early computer crime; contemporary computer crime; identity theft & identity fraud; terrorism & organized crime; legal prosecution; US first and fourth amendment applications towards computer-related crime (respectively); computer forensics terminology; searching/seizing computer-related evidence; processing evidence & report preparation; and conclusions. Each chapter contains thematic essays (arranged by topic) with accompanying case studies. 9 (of 13) chapters describe computer crime while 4 chapters describe computer forensics; this book might be better re-titled "An Introduction to U.S. Computer Crimes" with "Computer Forensics" as an accompanying workbook--given the current limited space for computer forensics. Further, a fourth edition might benefit from separating history, legal analysis, criminal investigation, and analysis into separate sections--rather than risk overwhelming most novice readers and to explicitly help readers develop tangible skills. While some readers might be disappointed with the exclusive focus on US crime, while other readers might be frustrated with the value-laden (rather than detached scholarly description) of social and legal issues, and while novice criminal justice readers will not be able to easily read this book (because it assumes foundational knowledge of US criminal investigations and law), some readers might find the book to be a helpful resource for identifying resources for further personal study.

    This was one of my textbooks in 2010 while I was studying for my Bachelors of Science in Information Technology. While most people do not really like to refer back to when they were in college, with respect to good books, this was a good one of teaching. Excellent ideological trials and tests of your knowledge and the ability to demonstrate you understand what you have learned.
