Summary: Crime and Everyday Life, Fifth Edition, offers a bold approach to crime theory and crime reduction. The text shows how crime opportunity is a necessary condition for illegal acts to occur. The authors offer realistic, often common-sense, ways to reduce or eliminate crime and criminal behaviour in specific settings by removing the opportunity to complete the act. Using a clear and engaging writing style, author Marcus Felson and new co-author Mary Eckert talk directly to the student about criminal behaviour, the routine activity approach, and specific crime reduction ideas.

Favouring long-term preventive measures over repressive ones, this guide promotes partnerships designed to tackle crime prevention on several fronts, bringing together the police, the media, schools, the business community, foreigners' advisory councils, urban planners and the inhabitants of local communities themselves. The consultation and participation of local inhabitants in social and environmental development schemes for their neighbourhood is particularly important, as it can strengthen their sense of cohesion with the community in which they live and restore lost confidence in the ability of public authorities to deal with crime.
