Signal Crimes

Social Reactions to Crime, Disorder, and Control

Martin Innes

  • Sets out a radical new framework for understanding how we individually and collectively interpret, make-sense of and react to crime.
  • Uses extensive empirical data from fieldwork studies of public reactions to anti-social behaviour, high profile murders and terrorism to show how ideas about signaling shed new light on 'real world' issues.
  • Showcases key ideas, such as Neighbourhood Policing, that have already had considerable policy and practice impact.
