This groundbreaking book presents a definitive look at the history of crime prevention strategies and policies in the United States. It analyzes the failures of American crime prevention techniques and possible solutions our country might seek to reduce crime, drugs, and disorder in the future. It looks at both sides of the crime prevention issue: the failure of the current criminal justice system and the possibilities and advantages of citizen participation in crime prevention programs and strategies. It also addresses such key issues and dilemmas as our perception of crime through the media and school crime.
