Crime Prevention in Australia

Crime Prevention in Australia

Issues in policy and research

Edited by Pat O'Malley and Adam Sutton


The strengths of this book, in addition to the broad and varied expertise of the contributors, are:

  • the way in which it brings together theory, research and policy
  • its presentation of the issues in the context of local and 'relevant' Australian developments while grounding the discussion in international trends and background.
