From the Publisher
"[M]apping is an excellent way of studying crime, making this study extremely beneficial for sociologists and criminologists. Highly recommended."
"[A] very useful addition to library collections, for information about spatial aspects of criminal activities, and to personal libraries for cartographers, to provide information on methods of depicting crime."
"Readers can recognize that maps can enrich their understanding of crime and its control on several different levels. The contributors to this volume have solid credentials and, altogther, Atlas of Crime provides its readers with some rich insights in the character and distribution of crime in the United States."
American Reference Books Annual
"This fascinating look at how law enforcement uses information to combat crime is actually intended for college and public libraries, but schools with special law or geography-related curricula will find it a useful addition to their collections."
The Book Report
"Attention, crime buffs! This reference work will show you where to go to find (or avoid) any type of criminal activity. . . . I recommend that every criminal justice practitioner, urbanologist, and sociologist have this book."
