Reviews

'This is an excellent book... written in a very lively and engaging manner that immediately grabs the reader's attention from the outset. ...[Hypercrime] provides a rich addition to the social control literature that will shape the contours of our understanding of control for decades to come.' - Dr Laura Piacentini, University of Strathclyde, UK '...McGuire's book is an excellently written excursion into a much discussed topic but from an innovative perspective. It is both original and scholarly and makes a very important contribution to debates on cybercrime, and to the emerging field of social harm. The book's focus on harm raises fundamental questions about understandings of crime and the effectiveness of crime control in contemporary society.' - Christina Pantazis, British Journal of Criminology, vol. 48 no. 6 (November 2008)
