Om boka

Despite the massive growth in the amount of identity theft taking place and the attention it receives in the media there has been a surprising lack of academic work and research on the subject.This book aims to address this deficit, focusing on the opportunities for committing - and thereby preventing - identity theft.Drawing upon the work of a distinguished range of contributors, the book provides a range of perspectives on the topic of identity theft but with a common core of concerns - in particular questions of definition, measurement, the scarcity of data, the role of technology, and the importance of cooperation in combating the problem.Each chapter offers a glimpse into the world of identity theft. Taken as a whole the book is testament to the diversity of the topic and the commitment of its authors towards understanding identity theft and preventing its occurrence.
