"The Internet has revolutionized the way society operates and conducts business in previously unimaginable ways; yet there is a darker, more sinister side of the Internet that has given birth to the cybercriminal, particularly the cyber drug trafficker. The transnational aspect of cybercrimes, particularly relating to the challenges of investigating, prosecuting, and deterring unlawful cyber drug sales and operations, is a central theme woven throughout this book. `Hawking Hits on the Information Highway' is a valuable contribution to the field, which will undoubtedly appeal to and attract the interests of criminal justice scholars, practitioners, and students." (Michael Pittaro, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, Lehigh Valley College)
"Absolutely riveting. `Hawking Hits on the Information Highway' is a beautifully clear and thoroughly researched account of exactly how both illegal drug dealers and the government's drug warriors exploit the Internet." (Jeffrey A. Schaler, School of Public Affairs, American University; Author of `Addiction Is a Choice')
