This book provides an analytic overview and assessment of the changing nature of crime prevention, disorder and community safety in contemporary society. Bringing together nine original articles from leading national and international authorities on these issues, the book examines recent developments in relation to a number of specific groups - the disadvantaged, the socially excluded, youth, women and ethnic minorities. Topics covered include:
* the increase in local authority responsibility for crime control and community safety
* the development of inter-agency alliances
* the changing nature of policing * the passing of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
