About this book

This exciting and timely collection showcases recent work on Cybercrime by members of Uclan Cybercrime Research Unit [UCRU], directed by Dr Tim Owen at the University of Central Lancashire, UK. This book offers up-to-date perspectives on Cybercrime based upon a Realist social ontology, alongside suggestions for how research into Cybercrime might move beyond what can be seen as the main theoretical obstacles facing criminological theory: the stagnation of critical criminology and the nihilistic relativism of the postmodern and post-structuralist cultural turn. 
Organised into three sections; ‘Law and Order in Cyberspace’, ‘Gender and Deviance in Cyberspace’, and ‘Identity and Cyberspace’, this cutting-edge volume explores some of the most crucial issues we face today on the internet: grooming, gendered violence, freedom of speech and intellectual property crime. Providing unique new theory on Cybercrime, this book will appeal to scholars and advanced students of Criminology, Law, Sociology, Philosophy, Policing and Forensic Science, Information Technology and Journalism, in addition to professionals working within law and order agencies and the security services.
