'People pieces': the neglected but essential elements of community crime prevention

By Janet Foster


The cover shows protesters with a sign proclaiming "protect our kids not p(a)edophiles." In nine contributions, UK scholars examine findings from British case studies of community-based crime prevention to assess the effectiveness of this approach and lessons for the international community. Hughes (social policy, Open U.) and Edwards (criminology, Nottingham Trent U.) introduce the issues broached in community governance of crime control, including the rise of vigilantism, interpretations of "community," and national and local politics. Postmodern reflections on these factors are also offered
