About the Authors
  • This 2005 book provides an analytic overview and assessment of the changing nature of crime in the burgeoning information society. Bringing together views from leading national and international authorities, Hedieh Nasheri explains the historical and theoretical background surrounding issues of economic espionage, trade secret theft and industrial spying and its impact on society. She looks at legislative history, the progression of electronic and corporate criminal behavior by introducing the concept of information theft and computer crimes, exploring its definition, its identification and its development within criminology. Nasheri presents an assessment of the state of economic espionage activities within a criminological context and based on that assessment addresses areas where additional action is required. The book also draws attention to a variety of issues raised by economic espionage and technological development. It draws on a variety of disciplines, including criminology, criminal justice, sociology, law and society, economics and political science.

    • Provides the first comprehensive treatment of domestic and international industrial spying activities and their competitive impact on businesses and governments
    • Explains the historical and theoretical background surrounding issues of economic espionage, trade secret theft and industrial spying and summarizes all U.S. prosecutions as of 2003 for economic espionage
    • Provides policy recommendations for dealing with the growing international problem of economic espionage
