Description - Crime, Disorder, and Community Safety by Roger Matthews

This book provides an analytic overview and assessment of the changing nature of crime prevention, disorder and community safety in contemporary society. Bringing together nine original articles from leading national and international authorities on these issues, Crime, Disorder and Community Safety examines recent developments including the shift towards an increase in local authority's responsibility for crime control and community safety, the development of inter-agency alliances, the changing nature of policing and the passing of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. The question underpinning this collection is whether we are experiencing a major watershed in crime prevention and community safety policies. In addressing these issues the various authors explore the theory, politics and practice associated with these changes and assess their significance in relation to a number of specific groups - the disadvantaged, the socially excluded, youth, women and ethnic minorities.
