More About Environmental Criminology by Martin A. Andresen
 
 
 
Overview

The field of environmental criminology is a staple theoretical framework in contemporary criminological theory. With this book, Martin Andresen presents the first comprehensive and sole-authored textbook on this influential and compelling school of criminological thought. He covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • the origins of environmental criminology;
  • the primary theoretical frameworks, such as routine activity theory, geometric theory of crime, rational choice theory, and the pattern theory of crime;
  • the practical application of environmental criminology;
  • an examination of how theories are operationalized and tested;
  • policy implications for the practice of crime prevention.

As well as these "popular topics," Andresen also discusses also a number of topics that are at the leading edge of research within environmental criminology.

This text will be ideal for courses on crime prevention, where students are often encouraged to consider policy problems and apply theory to practice. This book offers up environmental criminology as a theoretical framework for making sense of complex neighbourhood problems, meaning that it will be perfect for modules on geography of crime, crime analysis and indeed, environmental criminology. It would also be a good supplement for courses on criminological theory.
