The title of this book belies the in depth analytical and critical approach taken to a wide range of crime prevention issues. Asw such it is well worth the undergraduate student using this to help them frame their debates
This is a good book for a course I am writing on crime prevention and reduction. Awaiting validation on this optional course.
I have actually adopted this for both UG and PG students. The focus and content of the book is very different from most of the other material in this area. I hope that Dr Evans is working on a sequel.
An interesting and coherent introduction to Crime prevention, particularly useful for critical Criminology undergraduate courses
Good overview of a number of policy areas and issues around crime prevention
A concise and up-to-date account of crime prevention theory, practice and research written to be accessible and interesting to both academics and students.
A useful introdutory text for undergraduate students. Provides a detailed analysis of crime prevention policies and practice in the UK.
Useful in the very narrow area of prevention
Karen Evans provides a detailed critical review of strategies adopted in order to engage communities in a joint task of reducing crime. The practical issues associated with such a task are presented in the context of changing political and ideological structures, not least the move towards more sophisticated crime control strategies.
For students, Evans presents the complexities of the 'Third Way' in an accessible way, emphasizing the multifarious task of community engagement.
An excellent text for undergraduate, postgraduate and researchers.
This book is a useful supplement to the key readings in this area.
