About this book


This book fills a number of gaps in the 'community and crime' literature, makes important theoretical contributions, and is based on original research. Questions explored include: How do changes in the urban environment impact upon local (high crime) communities? How do changes in housing provision and consumption influence crime patterning? Can current community safety and urban policies address the needs of high crime, mixed tenure, inner-city areas? And how do community groups respond to neighbourhood change, crime and disorder?
