In this book a distinguished international team of contributors address the question of analysis for crime prevention, as distinct from analysis of crime prevention. It is oriented towards the generation of preventive strategies, in three key ways: identifies concentrations of crime or particular offences where there is a potential yield for preventive effect; helps find the most efficient and effective means of prevention; and helps to forecast likely future crime problems.

Introduction: analysis for crime prevention (Nick Tilley); 1 The time window effect in the measurement of repeat victimization: a methodology for its examination, and an empirical study (Graham Farrell, William H. Sousa and Deborah Lamm Weisel); 2 Forecasting the future of predictive crime mapping (Elizabeth R. Groff and Nancy G. LaVigne); 3 Hot Spots and Cold Comfort: the importance of having a working thermometer (Michael Townsley and Ken Pease); 4 Anticipatory benefit in crime prevention (Martha J. Smith, Ronald V. Clarke and Ken Pease); 5 Reducing theft at construction sites: lessons from a problem oriented project (Ronald V. Clarke and Herman Goldstein); 6 From the source to the mainstream is uphill: the challenge of transferring knowledge of crime prevention through replication, innovation and anticipation (Paul Ekblom); 7 Methodological issues in working with policy-advisers and practitioners (Gloria Laycock)
