Reducing Crime by Amanda Perry
Book DescriptionBased on extensive research initiated by the UK Home Office, Reducing Crime offers an objective look at the effectiveness of criminal justice interventions in the reduction of crime.

In addition to a cost/benefits analysis of each intervention, the book also discusses future research and policy directions.
