Description

Previous editions of "Crime and Everyday Life" have been popular with students and instructors for the author's clear, concise writing style and his unique approach to crime causation. The fourth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated throughout. By emphasizing that routine everyday activities set the stage for illegal activities (for example stolen goods sold in a legal business setting), Marcus Felson challenges the conventional wisdom and offers a unique perspective and novel solutions for reducing crime. Students in introductory criminology and criminal justice courses will discover that simple and inexpensive changes in the physical environment and patterns of everyday activity can often produce substantial decreases in crime rates. Insightful, yet fun to read, this new edition of "Crime and Everyday Life" is sure to provoke students to look at the causes and control of crime with a fresh perspective.
