Description - Crime Prevention by Henry Shaftoe

Much of the debate about how to prevent crime feeds off misinformation and moral panics. This lively and thought-provoking book aims to get to the core of the debates surrounding the prevention of crime. Taking an inter-disciplinary 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 importantly, 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.
