About this book

Drawing on new studies from major European countries and Australia, this exciting collection extends the ongoing debate on falling crime rates from the perspective of criminal opportunity or routine activity theory. It analyses the effect of post WW2 crime booms which triggered a universal improvement in security across the Western world.

Reviews

"The importance of [this book's] content and the quality of the information given on crime trends should not be overlooked. For students wishing to look into ideas for theses and theorists looking to make an impact on future crime prevention policy, this book is an invaluable and accessible stepping stone and point of reference to finding answers to an important phenomenon. The International Crime Drop is a much needed consolidation of useful crime statistics and analyses, with figures that are ripe for interpretation and development, and a great deal of scope to influence criminological thinking." - The Internet Journal of Criminology
