Geography of Crime : Theory, Integration and Application
Environmental criminology and its many sub-fields are increasingly becoming the focus of discussion among criminologists and criminal justice professionals. Many of the new courses being developed at universities through North America, Europe, and Oceania focus on geography of crime, geographic profiling, and crime prevention through environmental design.
The Geography of Crime: Theory, Integration and Application is one of the first works to specifically explore how the tenets of environmental criminology can be applied to modern urban design and crime analysis with the aim of creating safer and more secure communities. Discussing the topic’s relevance to both academia and law enforcement, the book provides international perspectives from world-wide experts who supply a contemporary overview of spatial criminology and its applications.
