"Cybercrime scholarship is moving from the descriptive to the analytical, with a rapidly accumulating evidence base. This book contains a valuable overview of major issues in cybercrime research, from theory testing to practical preventive measures. Informative, eminently readable, and richly documented, its impressive compilation and ordering of research findings will enlighten a generation of cybercrime students. "
Peter Grabosky, Professor Emeritus, Australian National University, Australia
"Cybercrime in Progress is by far the most comprehensive yet incisive book on cybercrime available anywhere. It is written with clarity, authority and vision, so well written, in fact, that it would be an appropriate text for any undergraduate or graduate class. The title Cybercrime in Progress captures the essence of cybercrime: it is a moving and fluid target, changing constantly, creating new opportunities for offenders; new challenges for society’s traditional responses to crime. Many people may think that cybercrime is too technical to understand. This book will change all that. Holt and Bossler are masters of their craft: they succinctly sum up the short history of cybercrime, point to the gaps in our responses to it, and tell us exactly what we must do in the future if we are to control it."
Graeme Newman, Distinguished Teaching Professor, University at Albany, USA
"Thomas Holt and Adam Bossler have done a really great job in locating cybercrimes and the future development of online criminal opportunities within the context of the various criminological debates. This book should not only help students undertake their studies into cybercrime, but also assist established scholars in coming to grips with this interesting, but constantly shifting area of interdisciplinary study."
David S. Wall, Professor of Criminology, University of Leeds, UK
