Community-based crime prevention has become one of the principal policy responses to crime and disorder across western societies, and regarded now as one of the keys to successful crime prevention and reduction. The aim of this book is to bring together findings from case studies of community-based crime prevention in Britain as a means of examining the prospects for this approach, its evolving relationship with criminal justice and social policies, and of assessing the lessons internationally that can be drawn from this in the theory, practice, research and politics of crime control.;At the same time, the book advances an important new conceptual framework for understanding community-based crime prevention, focusing on an understanding of the diversity of community crime prevention strategies, the locally particular conditions in which they are conducted, and the degree of choices open to political authorities charged with implementing these strategies. Understanding diversity in this way is central to drawing lessons about the transferability of crime prevention theory and practice from one social context to another, avoiding the naive emulation of practices in different contexts.
