New Editions to the Crime Prevention and Security Management Series
The Crime Prevention and Security Management series is a collection of books published by Palgrave Macmillan and edited by Martin Gill.
It is widely recognised that we live in an increasingly unsafe society, but the study of security and crime prevention has lagged behind in its importance on the political agenda and has not matched the level of public concern. This exciting series aims to address these issues looking at topics such as crime control, policing, security, theft, workplace violence and crime, fear of crime, civil disorder, white collar crime and anti-social behaviour. International in perspective, providing critically and theoretically-informed work, this series will advance new understandings of crime prevention and security management.
Recent and upcoming additions to this series include:
