The New Social Control In Urban America

Katherine Beckett and Steve Herbert

Studies in Crime and Public Policy

  • The first in-depth analysis of these disturbing new trends impinging on the rights and livelihoods of ordinary citizens across America's cities.
  • By demonstrating that banishment does not work to either reduce "disorder" or help those subjected to it to improve their lives, this book directly challenges broken windows theory and zero tolerance policing tactics.
