Crime and Social Institutions Hardback
Edited by Richard Rosenfeld
This volume presents recent theoretical arguments and empirical research on the relationship between crime and the structure of communities and whole societies.
Focusing on the 'institutional-anomie' perspective and allied crime theories, the selections examine the impact on crime of the family, education, community organizations and social welfare institutions.
An important theme of the volume is that vital social insitutions can cushion the effects of poverty and inequality on crime rates.
