Industry of Anonymity is an accessible and important work on the organization of cybercrime. No other study provides the depth, breadth, and rigor on this difficult-to-reach community.—David Skarbek, Brown University

With convincing and compelling arguments, impressive empirical work, balanced explanations, and effective writing, Industry of Anonymity is a remarkable contribution to the literature on cybercrime. Criminology and sociology audiences have been waiting for this kind of book.—Benoît Dupont, University of Montreal

Industry of Anonymity is without doubt the best exploration of the evolution of cybercrime today. Even as someone who has worked in this field for over a decade, I found new insights in every chapter. An absolute must read for any cybercrime investigator.—Robert McArdle, Trend Micro Forward-Looking Threat Research Team

Based on more than two hundred interviews and numerous field trips to the world’s cybercrime hotspots, this is a masterful account of how cybercrime has matured into a large, profit-driven industry. Offering a wealth of data on the informal arrangements that underpin cooperation among anonymous criminals, Lusthaus puts a face to people who normally hide in the shadows. Industry of Anonymity will be the standard reference for years to come.—Federico Varese, author of Mafia Life

Jacket: The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, by Anthony Abraham Jack, from Harvard University Press

Book Club Spotlight: The Privileged Poor

As students around the world deliberate their options for further education, only made more challenging in a pandemic, we’re reminded that getting in is only half the battle. In The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, Anthony Abraham Jack asks how—and why—do disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges? What can schools can do differently if these students are to thrive? As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.
