These are the computer related books I borrowed on Thursday night after my LAWS4701 class taught by Chris McNaught.
Wall, David, ed. Crime and the Internet (London, Routledge, 2001).
This book suggests that neither a big crime or no crime has occurred because of the Internet. Rather a lot of minor small crimes have occurred and we still aren't sure what, where, why, who, when and how the Internet is existing and changing existence. It is a collection of papers about Internet crime by criminologists from the UK. I have not read much of it yet.
Grabosky, Peter & Smith, Russell G. & Dempsey, Gillian. Electronic Theft: Unlawful Acquisition in Cyberspace (Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2001).
This book examines cybercrime but in particular theft using computers.
Zylinska, Joanna ed. The Cyborg Experiments: The Extensions of the Body in the Media Age (London: Continuum, 2002).
I don't know what this book is about yet.
Gray, Chris Hables. cyborg citizen: Politics in the Posthuman Age (New York: Routledge, 2001).
This book examines briefly all kinds of cyborgs but the main theme is the politics of the cyborg age in particular participatory politics. So this book is both maybe a green politics book and also in the subfield of political science studies that I place my own political science studies. I am tempted to read more of this book but also tempted not too.
