Description - Taking a Bite Out of Crime by Garrett J. O'Keefe

This accessibly written book presents a case study of a major United States initiative aimed at increasing public awareness of how citizens can protect themselves and others from crime. It examines the development and content of the 14-year long campaign and evaluates its impact on the public. The state-of-the-art data presented from this extensive survey on the public's perceptions, attitudes and behaviours with respect to crime leads to the authors providing excellent recommendations for future campaigns.
