Review:

"The importance of [this book's] content and the quality of the information given on crime trends should not be overlooked. For students wishing to look into ideas for theses and theorists looking to make an impact on future crime prevention policy, this book is an invaluable and accessible stepping stone and point of reference to finding answers to an important phenomenon. The International Crime Drop is a much needed consolidation of useful crime statistics and analyses, with figures that are ripe for interpretation and development, and a great deal of scope to influence criminological thinking." - The Internet Journal of Criminology
