This book discusses safety in the public space of city centres and, thus, in the public realm. It is also concerned with public order and disorder and with those crimes which affect people's perceptions of safety in - and their use - of city centres. The various chapters show how crime, and especially fear of crime, could be reduced and how the centres of towns and cities might be reclaimed, made safer and more liveable.
