Burglary has all the credentials as the ""folk crime of the new millennium"", and is regularly identified as one of the crimes most feared by the public. Victims are particularly affected by burglary, and burglary is generally at the centre of crime prevention and community safety strategies.;This book provides an accessible, systematic account of burglary, focusing on the crime in the first part of the book, and on policy responses in the second. The book identifies the particular characteristics of burglary as a crime, drawing upon an extensive range of research in both the UK and elsewhere. It should be useful to both students of criminology and criminal justice and practitioners in policing and crime prevention, and it looks at burglary in both national and international contexts.
