Crime Prevention and Community Safety provides an essential introduction to the complex issues and debates in the field of crime control and the new politics of safety and security across the globe. The contributions to this volume collectively present a critique of current policy and open up the field of study to new directions. While engaging with the dominant focus on 'what works' in crime reduction and community safety, the book also moves beyond the traditionally narrow, technical boundaries of much previous debate. Crime Prevention and Community Safety looks at: * the relationship between crime control, communities and the nation state * the diverse and changing sites of conflict compromise and collusion around crime control policies * wider issues relating to 'risk', 'safety' and 'security' This is a course Reader for The Open University course D863 Community Safety, Crime Prevention and Social Control
