Review of: Digital Evidence and Computer Crime
Hundreds of books have been written on computers and computing, but my search found none that included the topics of cybercrime and computer forensics. Further, most computer-related books are targeted toward audiences knowledgeable about computer technology, and many of these are strictly applied, providing no theoretical basis for interpreting underlying concepts. For the average citizen who has no background in "digital data" and the reader who seeks a conceptual framework for what is written, most texts seem limited and lacking. In Digital Evidence and Computer Crime, however, Eoghan Casey (2001) brilliantly articulates technical details in lay terms for a wide audience ranging from those with little or no computer-related experience to knowledgeable experts in the field.
