Environmental Criminology

Publisher: Taylor and Francis Release date: 2019-10-08

Description

The field of environmental criminology is a staple theoretical framework in contemporary criminological theory. This fully revised and expanded edition of the world's first comprehensive and sole-authored textbook on this influential school of criminological thought covers a wide range of topics, including:the origins of environmental criminology; the primary theoretical frameworks, such as routine activity theory, geometry of crime, rational choice theory, and the pattern theory of crime; the practical application of environmental criminology; an examination of how theories are operationalized and tested; andpolicy implications for the practice of crime prevention. As well as these popular topics, Martin Andresen also discusses a number of topics that are at the leading edge of research within environmental criminology. New to the second edition are chapters on empirical support for the various models of crime prevention covered and on the growing literature on "e;the journey to crime"e;.This text will be ideal for courses on crime prevention, where students are often encouraged to consider policy problems and apply theory to practice. This book offers up environmental criminology as a theoretical framework for making sense of complex neighborhood problems, so it is also perfect for courses on geography of crime, crime analysis, and, indeed, environmental criminology. It would also be a good supplement for courses on criminological theory.
