9780415856126: Environmental Criminology: Evolution, Theory, and Practice

The field of environmental criminology is a staple theoretical framework in contemporary criminological theory. With this book, Martin Andresen presents the first comprehensive and sole-authored textbook on this influential and compelling school of criminological thought. He covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • the origins of environmental criminology;
  • the primary theoretical frameworks, such as routine activity theory, geometric theory of crime, rational choice theory, and the pattern theory of crime;
  • the practical application of environmental criminology;
  • an examination of how theories are operationalized and tested;
  • policy implications for the practice of crime prevention.

As well as these "popular topics", Andresen also discusses also a number of topics that are at the leading edge of research within environmental criminology.

This text will be ideal for courses on crime prevention, where students are often encouraged to consider policy problems and apply theory to practice. This book offers up environmental criminology as a theoretical framework for making sense of complex neighbourhood problems, meaning that it will be perfect for modules on geography of crime, crime analysis and indeed, environmental criminology. It would also be a good supplement for courses on criminological theory.

About the Author:

Martin A. Andresen is an Associate Professor in the School of Criminology and Institute for Canadian Urban Research Studies at Simon Fraser University. He is also an Associate Member of the Department of Geography at Simon Fraser University, a Member of the Crime and Place Working Group in the Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy at George Mason University, and an Editorial Advisory Board Member for the Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice.

Review:

'Martin Andresen has produced a very timely and useful book that clearly introduces environmental criminology to students. Not only that, but his clear writing also makes this very important field exciting to students. No undergraduate criminology or criminal justice major should escape college without understanding environmental criminology, and this is just the text to make them thankful they did not escape without this knowledge.' - John Eck, Professor of Criminal Justice, University of Cincinnati, USA

'This is a brilliantly crafted book that accomplishes what none other has: it draws together the diverse strands of environmental criminology into a coherent whole. The pages are packed with information. The major theories are not only carefully defined, but the metaphysics of how they were derived is explained. This is a very comprehensive book that will not be tucked away on a top shelf, but rather will be housed at the eye-level of any serious student or scholar of environmental criminology.' - George F. Rengert, Professor Emeritus, Temple University, USA

'In this book, Martin Andresen offers a comprehensive overview of the roots and evolution of environmental criminology: reviewing the insights of ecologists; examining the theoretical underpinnings of crime pattern analysis; and explaining the technical approaches to crime analysis, mapping and prevention. Offered in an easy to read, non-technical format, this book is essential reading for criminology students of all levels and for professional crime analysts who want to broaden their understanding of the intricacies of studying crime in space and time.' - Les Kennedy, University Professor, Rutgers School of Criminal Justice, USA

'In Environmental Criminology: Evolution, Theory, and Practice, Martin Andresen provides a comprehensive and interesting overview of one of criminology’s most exciting and useful perspectives. In addition to the standard coverage of history and theories, Dr Andresen also discusses the practice of environmental criminology, illustrating how the discipline has been used in real world applications of crime prevention, crime analysis, and police investigation. Clearly written, with a generous number of explanatory figures, this book will make a great text for both undergraduate and graduate-level university and college courses.' - Kim Rossmo, Professor and Director, Center for Geospatial Intelligence and Investigation, School of Criminal Justice, Texas State University, USA
