Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Fear of Crime in the United States: Causes, Consequences, and Contradictions examines the nature and extent of crime-related fear, discussing important research findings about this social problem over the past five decades. The authors begin with a broad overview of the importance of and literature on fear of crime and then describe and evaluate key research findings in the specific areas of methodology, gender, age, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomic status, contextual predictors, and the consequences of fear of crime. They discuss the improvement of fear of crime measures over time, the consistent finding that women are more afraid of crime, the impact of age, race and ethnicity and socioeconomic status on fear, and the importance of environmental factors (such as witnessing crime and perceptions of diversity, disorder, and decline) and indirect victimization (through acquaintances and the media) on fear. The book also describes the physical, psychological, behavioral, and social effects of fear of crime. In the end, the authors tie the findings together to suggest important policy and research implications from the wealth of available research. Interested students, researchers, policy makers, and practitioners will find this book an important resource for understanding and addressing fear of crime. Bookseller Inventory #
