About this product
- DescriptionThe field of environmental crimilogy is a staple theoretical framework in contemporary crimilogical theory. With this book, Martin Andresen presents the first comprehensive and sole-authored textbook on this influential and compelling school of crimilogical thought. He covers a wide range of topics, including: * the origins of environmental crimilogy; * the primary theoretical frameworks, such as routine activity theory, geometric theory of crime, rational choice theory, and the pattern theory of crime; * the practical application of environmental crimilogy; * an examination of how theories are operationalized and tested; * policy implications for the practice of crime prevention. As well as these popular topics , Andresen also discusses also a number of topics that are at the leading edge of research within environmental crimilogy. 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 crimilogy as a theoretical framework for making sense of complex neighbourhood problems, meaning that it will be perfect for modules on geography of crime, crime analysis and indeed, environmental crimilogy. It would also be a good supplement for courses on crimilogical theory.
