All rights reserved. This book aims to provide a clear rationale and defence of the evolving discipline of crime science, whilst providing a number of case studies.
The first part of the text defines crime science and sets out the parameters of the discipline. Part Two builds upon the initial chapter, focusing on the theoretical and methodological rationale and strengths of the crime science discipline. Finally, Parts Three and Four revolve around a series of case studies related to the prevention and detection of crime. The introduction provides a useful outline charting the terrain of the book.

In the first chapter, Gloria Laycock presents a comprehensive overview of crime science as an emerging discipline. This chapter is written clearly and should be accessible to a broad audience. This will be of key importance to students examining the viability of crime science as a distinct discipline.
The importance of this chapter cannot be underestimated, as it clearly sets the tone for the remainder of the text.

Part Two provides a useful commentary on the practical use of crime science as a tool for practitioners and policy makers. Community safety as a concept is clearly embedded in this approach, and is emphasised from the outset.

Part Three of the book contains a variety of case studies addressing crime prevention, including examples from prison disorder Wortley and Summers , crime committed against motorway services Tilley , through to vehicle duty excise evasion Smith and Webb , and crime mapping Johnson, Bowers and Pease. These chapters illustrate the value of crime science as an evaluative tool, whilst raising challenging questions sometimes faced by researchers such as how to approach research problems with missing data.

The strength of these chapters lies in the willingness of the authors to examine the methods used and the theoretical influences informing their work. These chapters make a positive contribution to an area lacking research, and therefore make an important addition to the literature on detection. In Chapter 9, Stelfox and Pease clearly identify the key concerns regarding investigative training and the lack of emphasis on detective decision making.co.organiccrap.com/103008.php
The reasoning criminal vs. Homer Simpson: conceptual challenges for crime science
These skills do not appear to be developed as part of a curriculum for investigation, and, therefore, often become a prominent issue when discussing the professionalisation or otherwise of detectives. Overall, the book lacks a critical edge in places. The authors are perhaps caught between a wish to present a convincing presentation of crime science as a distinct and emerging discipline, and a wish to provide a more critical commentary.
However, this is a valuable book containing definition, theory and illustrations of crime science in the shape of case studies. This text will be particularly useful for students studying research methodology at undergraduate or postgraduate level. The writing style is accessible and the content thorough, and my sense is that the book will appeal to students and professionals alike.
The variety of the case studies used illustrates examples in a range of contexts that are underpinned by the preceding chapters. This book contains some very good chapters that are interesting and informative, and which combine new areas of research with more established subject matter. Volume 46 , Issue 3.
