Great 2nd edition

This book clearly and comprehensively complements the first edition. the new chapters on ID theft and organized crime are a welcome addition. I have been anxiously awaiting the second edition, and it DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. BRAVO!!

Great undergraduate book

This particular book by Britz, is but one more example of her commitment to detail in all of her works. Like her previous books, this book is both readable and comprehensive. It is one that I myself have adopted in my computer crime course, and I am anxiously awaiting the second edition. The chapters on the legal issues and the history of computer crime are unparalleled in the extant literature. More succinctly, the greatest strength of the book is its' sheer readibility. Designed for undergraduates, this particular text is a must read for any beginner interested in computer crime and computer investigations. Unlike other books in the field which prove to be far too advanced for novices, Britz's book allows even the most unsophisticated reader to appreciate and understand the problems associated with the investigation of computer crime, as well as recognize emerging trends in this area. Please, please, provide a second edition as soon as possible!!

Well Done

"Computer Forensics and Cyber Crime," written by Marjie T. Britz and, publish by Pearson Education Inc., seems to be a very well balance book, why? It just took me few minutes, between reading the introductory notes and "browsing" to its chapters, to understand that this book is well sequenced and organized. This author explains in rather a pleasant way this subject and gradually internalizes the students by attracting them to a more extensive regions of Computer forensics, as it is data analysis, reporting or computer investigations. This is an important and interesting field, that is capturing the attention of many professionals and envolves many disciplines, I just read the other day in one of those infamous blogs, "Computer Archeologists are using new and powerful computer forensics tools to examine and gain understanding of 'lifted data' that apparently was written 25 years ago." Nevertheless, this author seems to have made all the efforts to bring comprehensiveness by illuminating fundamental relationships,** not only between computer history and cyber crime, if not among many issues surrounding the applications of the fourth amendment and the understanding of the limits of government decency. The management of these seemingly intricate relationships is crucial for our immediate future, as a nation, experiencing a yet unexplored global economy which is using extensively and intensively the eCommerce over intranets, internets and the Internet, and as a nation, which some how needs to preserve the individual freedoms and leadership that rightly so, has been acquired through all its years of existence, with hard work, determination and within the framework of its fundamental democratic values. The author closes this book by looking at the world's future issues with respect to cyber crime and even gives us routes by which we could answers most of the urgent and pressing dilemmas of our digital epoch. Do you want to know the answer, well read the book yourself and find out what this book offers. In conclusion, this book is readable, manages and balances many aspects of this new subject, besides it seems as a good starting point and a splendid reference, from which any student can continue to build their expertise on computer forensics and Cyber crime. ** [even the use of technology to commit crimes is well referenced by this book, I observed a photograph of Bonnie and Clyde, who used then the recently invented automobile for outsmart the police of their times, p. 31]
