Crime Prevention and Security Management

Palgrave Macmillan’s Crime Prevention and Security Management series, edited by Martin Gill, has published over 20 titles since it launched in 2008. 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 addresses 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, and edited by a leading scholar in the field, this series advances new understandings of crime prevention and security management.
