Violence and insecurity are among the most important issues facing communities in the 21st century. Both family violence and community violence are rapidly rising in the urbanizing nations of the South, and richer nations are also facing increased concern about the health, social, economic and environmental costs of violence and crime. The Handbook of Community Safety, Gender and Violence Prevention is the first book to gather together research and examples, from a gendered perspective, of local, regional and international interventions that work to prevent crime, violence and insecurity. Case studies of successful initiatives from every continent, in settings that vary from large cities to rural areas, are analysed to provide cross-cultural lessons of what works and what doesn't. The book presents essential practical advice to professionals such as: how to obtain diagnostic information on incidence and impacts of violence; how to develop, maintain and evaluate policies and programmes that can effectively promote community safety; and how to create trust and effectiveness in partnerships.

'A powerfully insightful book.' Caroline Moser, Professor of Urban Development, University of Manchester 'Finally someone who has looked at safety and violence issues in a way that makes you feel there is a solution.' Charles Landry, founding director of COMEDIA, 'This book is a must read for practitioners, local authorities and decision-makers who support a growing movement to make communities safer, specifically focusing on violent crime within the family and abuse of children, women and the elderly, which is often overlooked.' Cecilia Andersson, UN-Habitat Safer Cities Programme 'It will become an essential guide to all those who want to make their communities safer for women and men.' Margaret Shaw, Director of Analysis and Exchange, International Centre for the Prevention of Crime, Montreal, Canada 'Sometimes there is a genuine gap in he literature, sometimes you don't realise that there is a gap, until you read a book that fills it. This is that book... This handbook is undoubtedly a useful tool for practitioners and service managers as well as academics, evaluators and consultants.' Professional Social Work, British Association of Social Workers
