Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Situational crime prevention, a strategy of reducing criminal opportunities in the routines of everyday life through use of security cameras, and alarms, has frequently been written about from a technical or logistical perspective, asking, "Does it work?" This collection of papers by 12 UK and US criminologists focuses on ethical issues such as the approach's impact on people's freedom to go about their business. It also addresses where the approach fits into criminological discourse and whether it represents a shift in thinking about the nature of crime as well as about the prospects for dealing with it.
