Description - Anti-Social Behaviour by Andrew Millie

Runner up in the British Society of Criminology Book Prize 2010 What is anti-social behaviour? Can it be dealt with effectively? Is the problem exaggerated? From the Daily Mail's claim of Britain being named 'Yob Capital of Europe', to the headline in The Times of 'Tearaway given ASBO at 10', the subject of anti-social behaviour has been given a huge amount of political, social, media, public policy and academic interest in recent years. Using lively case studies and examples, Andrew Millie introduces the concept of anti-social behaviour (ASB) and examines its implications for society in the 21st century. The chapters explore: The origins of the term Different causes and types of ASB Theoretical framewords for ASB and ASB control How the UK deals with ASB compared to other countries The rise of the ASBO Alternative enforcement options Methods of prevention The future for ASBAnti-Social Behaviour is fascinating reading for all Criminology, Sociology and Social Policy students.
