Crime Control in Britain presents the results of the major criminological research carried out over the last 25 years by the Home Office Research Unit, a multidisciplinary body of social scientists located in the central governmental department of Great Britain. Its contents consist of journal articles, extracts from monographs, and original papers, presented in the form of a reader which places the research in the proper historical, theoretical, and policy contexts.
