9781443875356: Geography of Crime in China since the Economic Reform of 1978: A Multi-scale Analysis

China has seen dramatic social changes since the Economic Reform of 1978; however, the economic upsurge and rapid urbanization present a two-edged sword, with the consequence of more challenging crime problems. This book presents an analysis of criminal issues in China from a geographic perspective, utilizing both spatio-temporal analysis and qualitative techniques at multiple spatial and temporal scales. It pays particularly close attention to a pilot study in Shenzhen city, testing the applicability of theories developed in Western society to the Chinese context. As such, this book is not merely a piece of research work, but rather a systematic overview of Chinese national crime issues.
