K-State sociology faculty member publishes co-edited volume on technocrime

Submitted by Kevin Steinmetz

Cover of Technocrime and Criminological Theory

Kevin Steinmetz, associate professor of sociology, recently edited a volume of "Technocrime and Criminological Theory" published by Routledge.

According to the publisher, Cybercrime, computer crime, internet crime and technosecurity have been of increasing concern to citizens, corporations, and governments since their emergence in the 1980s. Addressing both the conventional and radical theories underlying this emerging criminological trend, including feminist theory, social learning theory, and postmodernism, this text paves the way to tackle the most pertinent areas in technocrime.

"Technocrime and Criminological Theory" challenges readers to confront the conflicts, gaps, and questions faced by both scholars and practitioners in the field. This book serves as an ideal primer for scholars beginning to study technocrime or as a companion for graduate level courses in technocrime or deviance studies.
