9780415183352: Crime and Social Change in Middle England: Questions of Order in an English Town

Crime and Social Change in Middle England offers a new way of looking at contemporary debates on the fear of crime. Using observation, interviews and documentary analysis it traces the reactions of citizens of one very ordinary town to events, conflicts and controversies around such topical subjects of criminological investigation as youth, public order, drugs, policing and home security in their community. In doing so it moves in place from comfortable suburbs to hard pressed inner city estates, from the affluent to the impoverished, from old people watching the town where they grew up change around them to young in-comers who are part of that change. This is a book which will give all students of crime a rare and fascinating insight into how issues at the heart of contemporary law and order politics both nationally and internationally actually play out on the ground.

About the Author:

Ian Loader is Professor of Criminology at the University of Oxford and Professorial Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, England. Ian is the author of six books (most recently, "Public Criminology?" Routledge, 2010, with R. Sparks) and has published theoretical and empirical papers on policing, private security, public sensibilities towards crime, penal policy and culture, the politics of crime control, and the public roles of criminology. Ian is currently working on a project termed A Better Politics of Crime - concerned with different dimensions of the relationship between crime control and democratic politics. The first strand of work on this project was brought together in Public Criminology? The next key stage will be a monograph with the working title of Crime Control and Political Ideologies which is in the early stages of preparation. The project also includes edited volumes on "Democratic Theory and Mass Incarceration "(with A. Dzur and R. Sparks, Oxford University Press, 2016) and "Justice and Penal Reform" (with B. Goldson, S. Farrall and A. Dockley, Routledge, 2016).
