Design out Crime by Ian Colquhoun

Book Description

Here is a book about the practical design of communities and housing in which people can enjoy a good quality of life, free from crime and fear of crime. Recognising that crime, vandalism and anti-social behaviour are issues of high public concern, and that the driving forces behind crime are numerous, this book argues that good design can help tackle many of these issues. It shows how, through integrating simple crime prevention principles in the design process, it is possible, almost without notice, to make residential environments much safer. Written from the perspective of an architect and town planner, this book offers practical design guidelines through a set of accessible case studies drawn from the UK, USA, The Netherlands and Scandinavia. Each example illustrates how success comes when design solutions reflect local characteristics and where communities are truly sustainable; where residents feel they belong, and where crime is dealt with as part of the bigger picture of urban design.

From Oblivion to Hampden is the remarkable story of how an ill-fated flirtation with the stock market nearly killed Hibernian FC. The club and fans first fought off a hostile takeover in 1990, before being rescued from administration in the summer of 1991, surviving to embark upon one of the most memorable cup runs in Scottish football history.
