Crime Prevention by Henry Shaftoe
Book DescriptionMuch of the debate about how to prevent crime feeds off misinformation, moral panics and retributional rage. This lively and thought-provoking book aims to get to the core of the debates surrounding the prevention of crime. Taking an interdisciplinary approach to this complex topic, it illustrates the key role to be played in the prevention of crime by a number of professions such as housing managers, planners, teachers, youth workers, social workers, health visitors and, equally important, by lay citizens. Accessibly written and introducing a wide range of theories and issues from both academic literature and field-based research, Crime Prevention provides a balanced and wide-ranging account for all concerned with crime and its prevention.
