Law and Order in Australia: Rhetoric and Reality
Publication Date :
1 Jan 2004
This book provides a highly readable review of the making of policy on crime in Australia, showing how these are driven by the political need to manage public reactions, not to control and prevent crime. It shows what works and what doesn't on crime and its control, providing a punchy overview of the essential reality of contemporary prevention in Australia --with powerful echoes of developments in North America, the UK and elsewhere.
