Community safety emerged as a new approach to tackling and preventing UK local crime and disorder in the late 1980s and was adopted into mainstream policy by UK's New Labour in the late '90s. Twenty years on, it is important to ask how the community safety agenda has evolved and developed within local crime and disorder prevention strategies. Community Safety provides the first sustained critical and theoretically informed analysis of this topic, exploring the strengths and weaknesses of the community safety legacy, while posing challenging questions and examining a wide range of topics relating to community safety policy and practice, including: anti-social behavior strategies; victims' perspectives on community safety; race, racism, and policing; safety and social exclusion; domestic violence; substance misuse; community policing; and organized crime.
