Whose ‘Eyes on the Street’ Control Crime?
By Shannon Linning and John E. Eck. Available from Cambridge University Press’ Elements in Criminology series.
Shannon Linning (Simon Fraser University) and John Eck (University of Cincinnati) challenge the wisdom of relying on the link between neighborhood residents' informal social control and crime. Instead, they suggest that people from outside neighborhoods hold considerable power to alter crime within neighborhoods. This perspective draws from the works of Jane Jacobs focusing on property ownership and place management. The book should be of interest to academics, police, urban planners, and property developers.
