Space, Time, and Crime, 4th Edition

Timothy C. Hart and Kim Michelle Lersch

Carolina Academic Press


434 pages



Crime is not evenly distributed across locations, times, victims, or targets, say Hart and Lersch, and in every city there are relatively safe areas where serious crime is rare, and not-so-safe areas where crime--especially violent, predatory street crime--is an everyday occurrence. They explore issues related to the spatial and temporal clustering of crime for students and practitioners who deal with crime. They cover the basics; positivism, social ecology, and the Chicago school; choosing crime; theory into practice: building communities and altering the physical environment; analyzing crime; mapping crime; and some "radical" closing thoughts.
