About this book

An interdisciplinary study of retail crime as a cultural phenomenon, drawing on economics, criminology and management to present a comprehensive explanation for the growth in retail thefts. This topical study explores crime prevention as a management issue, using criminomics, a concept based on commercial realities rather than maximising arrests.

Reviews

'...stimulating book on retail loss, described as a 'must read' by Prof Martin Gill at the Retail Fraud conference in London in April...This pungent and well argued book ranges far wider than its title.' - Professional Security

'a thorough, well reasoned treatise on the scope, complexity and pervasiveness of retail property crime, with an historical focus on asset protection and loss prevention [...] Bamfield persuasively argues that the allure of shopping, encouraged by retailers' marketing efforts, is itself a contributor to retail crime, along with deviant behavior.' - Robert L. DiLonardo, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books
