This book is concerned with the concept of 'technocrime'. The term encompasses crimes committed on or with computers - the standard definition of cybercrime - but it goes well beyond this to convey the idea that technology enables an entirely new way of committing, combating and thinking about criminality, criminals, police, courts, victims and citizens."Technocrime" differs from books concerned more narrowly with cybercrime in taking an approach and understanding of the scope of technology's impact on crime and crime control in doing so, this book: uncovers mechanisms by which behaviours become crimes or cease to be called crimes and identifies a number of corporate, government and individual actors who are instrumental in this construction: looks at the beneficiaries of increased surveillance, control and protection as well as the targets of it: and, covers specific technologies (e.g. the use of CCTV in various settings: computers, hackers and security experts: photo radar) but have a wider objective to provide a comparative perspective and some broader theoretical foundations for thinking about crime and technology than have existed hitherto.This is a pioneering book which advances our understanding of the relationship between crime and technology, drawing upon the disciplines of criminology, political science, sociology, psychology, anthropology, surveillance studies and cultural studies.   show more
