Accessible and compelling, this book explores the legislative developments, policy changes and practical strategies that have been put in place in recent years in an attempt to manage the level of crime in our society. The book assesses how governments’ approaches to serious crime, the war on terror, human rights and race and immigration policies have influenced ideas about community safety and crime prevention.
