This text presents an international approach to the study of crime prevention. It offers an expansive overview of crime prevention initiatives and how they are applied across a wide range of themes and infractions, from conventional to non-conventional forms of crime. Based on a review of the literature, this is the first text to offer a broad, yet comprehensive, examination of how and why crime prevention has gained considerable traction as an alternative to conventional criminal justice practices of crime control in developed countries, and to provide a cross-sectional view of how crime prevention has been applied and how effective such initiatives have been. Crime Prevention: International Perspectives, Issues, and Trends is suitable for undergraduate students in criminology and criminal justice programs, as well as for graduates and undergraduates in special topics courses.

Dr. John Winterdyk has published extensively in the areas of criminology theory, youth at risk, corrections and criminal justice related issues, including articles in Canadian Journal of Criminal Justice and Criminal Justice Review, among others. He gained his PhD from Simon Fraser University and has recently returned to Mount Royal after time spent in Germany as a Visiting Scholar at the Max Planck Institute in Freiburg. He has published a number of books, including a recent edited book entitled Border Security in the Al-Qaeda Era, co-edited with Kelly Sundberg (MRU), as well as editing a book on human trafficking with Philip Reichel (Un. of Northern Colorado) and Benjamin Perrin (Un. of British Columbia). He is also working on a fourth edition of a textbook on youth justice. He recently completed a book entitled Inequality, Diversity and Canadian Justice (Nelson) with Doug King. Dr. Winterdyk's current research interests include Canadian border security, in particular looking at the effect the establishment of the Canada Border Services Agency has on the Canadian publics' perception of border security. Dr. Winterdyk recently completed a cross-national research project looking at combating human trafficking with scholars from Canada, USA and Austria, funded through the National Institute of Justice, and taken part in studies on identity theft (the first of its kind in Canada) and on mass marketing fraud. Dr. Winterdyk recently served as guest editor for a special issue on genocide for the International Criminal Review as well as a co-guest editor (with Philip Reichel) of European Journal of Criminology, which looks at human trafficking. His research projects include: human trafficking, fear of crime, border security, and prison gangs. In January 2010, Dr. Winterdyk became the Director of the Centre for Criminology and Justice Research Projects' pilot study, Human Trafficking: Formalizing a Localized Response.

    Winterdyk has accomplished a remarkable milestone in editing a collection of the most exciting contributions to crime prevention in recent years. This is an outstanding collection of readings by internationally distinguished scholars on a wide variety of crime prevention issues. Students and practitioners alike will benefit by having these chapters together in a single volume. As for policymakers, the book should be required reading. -- Georgios A. Antonopoulos, Teesside University

    This latest work by Winterdyk belongs to, and at the same time stands out from, the larger tradition of his scholarly work. The merit of the synoptic approach covering the four corners of crime prevention issues lies in the implicit assumption of a constructivist perspective, and profoundly invites policymakers to leave behind any narrow and limiting understanding of crime prevention. In editing an impressive and diverse collection of work on crime prevention, Winterdyk provides the basis for a holistic perspective. Much of this text could/should become required reading for students of criminal justice at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) and beyond. - Stefan Schulz, Namibia University of Science and Technology

    The contributors to this anthology shift the discussion about crime from its traditional focus on control to prevention, using examples from across the globe. The contributors provide a wealth of information and insight into crime prevention organized around three themes: a global overview of the challenges of implementing these strategies, the prevention of specific crimes (from child abuse to terrorism), and how prevention fits in the crime management discourse. Winterdyk has done a remarkable job of bringing these experts and scholars together to present a topical/issues-oriented approach that is supported by learning outcomes and critical questions. -Professor Rick Ruddell, Law Foundation of Saskatchewan Chair in Police Studies, University of Regina

Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
