Overview

Hedieh Nasheri investigates the current state of industrial espionage, revealing the far-reaching effects of advances in computing and wireless communications, in view of the recent revolution in information technology. Synthesizing perspectives from leading national and international authorities, Nasheri analyzes the historical and conceptual foundations of economic espionage, trade secret thefts, and industrial spying. She demonstrates how these activities impact society, and tracks the legislative and statutory efforts to control them. The international ramifications of economic espionage are emphasized and more than 40 accounts of noteworthy cases and episodes are included. Hedieh Nasheri is a professor of Justice Studies at Kent State University and a Visiting Professor at the University of Turku Law school in Finland. She has written and lectured extensively in the areas of law and social sciences and has given a number of invited lectures nationally and internationally on a wide range of policy and law related topics. She is the recipient of several international awards and grants. More recently, she received a grant from the State Department of the United States for studying issues related to "Organized Crime, Terrorism, and Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction" in Central Europe. She was awarded a Visiting Fellowship at the University of London's Institute of Advanced Legal Studies to conduct an investigation on issues related to intellectual property law and its relation to transnational crimes for the International Center at National Institute of Justice. She was a principal consultant on a grant project at Columbia University's National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, investigating Internet and international regulatory aspects of diversion and abuse of prescription drugs. Professor Nasheri has authored four books, including Betrayal of Due Process (1998) and Crime and Justice in the age of Court TV (2002). Her work has been cited in the United States Code Annotated with respect to the Economic Espionage Act, by the Blue Ribbon Commission on Jury System Improvement, the Australian Parliament, the United Nations' International Criminal Tribunal, the United Nations Commission on Crime Prevention, and the South African Law Commission. Professor Nasheri's research interests pertain to four related topics: law and Technology, Protection of Trade Secrets and Economic Espionage, Cyber-Crimes, and Comparative Jurisprudence.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"We criminologists and academic criminal lawyers have been slow to turn our attention to non-traditional crimes and criminals, thereby missing extraordinarily important developments. Hedieh N asheri has given us a wake up call. Her work on theft of intellectual property should be incorporated into our courses and research agendas." James. B. Jacobs, Warren E. Burger Professor of Law, NYU School of Law

    Highly Recommended !

    Author Hedieh Nasheri suggests that if James Bond were alive and well, he probably would be pounding a keyboard somewhere. Her book consists of an entertaining review of historic case studies of computer crimes and industrial spying, plus an examination of the laws that nations have passed in an attempt to stem the leaky tide of outgoing information. The book defines the magnitude of the problem and pounds the drums for greater international cooperation on security and protection of intellectual property, but it is short on real solutions. And who can blame Nasheri? When countries such as China and France bug airplane seats, break into hotel rooms, pilfer attaché cases and pay cash for pirated industrial secrets, why delve into international policing? We believe that reading this book is a sound place to start deepening the business community¿s education about this escalating problem.
