"The focus on metropolitan crime and the movement of criminals in metropolitan areas is unique."—Charles S. Wellford, University of Maryland


This is one the first books to examine crime trends from a metropolitan-wide perspective. Topics include: the “hardening” of the inner city; crime in suburbia; mobility patterns of offenders; the effect of neighborhood characteristics on crime; variations in police expenditures, and others.
