Experiments in Crime Questions and Answers

Experiments in Crime Questions and Answers

Crime is a multi-billion-dollar business. Crime is also deeply embedded in our social, economic, political, religious and material worlds. But, surely it is wrong that, day after day, year after year, thousands of decisions are taken, millions of lives are disturbed and billions of dollars are being spent without robust evidence as to what is the best course of action for those involved in, affected by, or afflicted through crime. Experiments seek to offer hope, they seek to offer help and they seek to assist in making this world, our world, your world, a better place. Fully loaded with questions and examples from across the world, with 27 sections, 44 tables and diagrams, 203 references and 260 pages, this book aims to:  share rich contemporary examples of experiments in crime that you can read, discuss, learn from, relate to and find out more about  give you insight and inspiration with respect to experiments in crime  introduce the language, terms, tips and traps of experiments in crime  empower you to become more confident, capable and curious about experiments in crime  inspire you to ask questions of experiments in crime and of the evidence they produce  encourage you to look at experimental and non experimental evidence  encourage you to look at real life data and how you can use it to help support and challenge experiments in crime  make you do something: think, talk, listen then act.
