Crime Prevention : International Perspectives, Issues, and Trends (Hardcover)
About this item
This text presents an international approach to the study of crime prevention. It offers a broader overview of how crime prevention initiatives can be and are applied across a wide range of themes and types of crime, i.e., from conventional to non-conventional forms of crime. Based on a review of the literature, this will be the first text to offer a broad, yet comprehensive, examination of how and why crime prevention has gained considerable traction as an alternative to conventional criminal justice practices of crime control in developed countries, and to provide a cross-sectional view of how crime prevention has been applied and how effective such initiatives have been.
