This book discusses safety in the public space of city centres and, thus, in the public realm. It is also concerned with public order and disorder and with those crimes which affect people's perceptions of safety in - and their use - of city centres. The various chapters show how crime, and especially fear of crime, could be reduced and how the centres of towns and cities might be reclaimed, made safer and more liveable.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This is a well thought out and readable text which provides both a good introduction for the uninitiated and, thanks to the editors' reasoned

commentary, a welcome up-to-date review for a more advanced audience.... It is worth recommending to students of town planning, geography, and related disciplines who are studying this subject. Its breadth of coverage makes it valuable' - Environment and Planning B

`This is a most valuable and (as far as I know) unique overview of the topic....This one book will bring the reader up to speed on current thinking and practice about: crime prevention, fear reduction and city-centre regeneration' - Planning Practice and Research

'This book discusses safety in the public space of city centres. It is also concerned with public order, and with those crimes which affect people's perceptions of safety in the use of city centres' - The Police Journal

'The merits of the book lie in the detail provided in the chapters on the articulation of such ideas in terms of town centre management, policing, safer transport and public lighting' - Urban Studies

`The book provides both useful information and a comprehensive bibliography and it should prove to be a valuable inspiration to those based in the UK and elsewhere who wish to see the revival of the city centre as a civilised place' - International Planning Studies
