qIt is a widespread assumption that crime and criminality can be explained as a consequence of declining morality and that crime can be brought under control by creating stronger communities. This book offers a critical exploration of the theory, policy and rhetoric that unpin this notion and the dangers that it presents to both controlling crime and (re)building civil society.This book examines the relationship between criminality and community decline and critically engages with the underlying political and ideological assumptions that inform this relationship. In so doing, Simon Green illuminates the underlying values, assumptions and theories that shape and direct government rhetoric and policies about crime control and to expose the hidden dangers and contradictions within them. q--Mair, G.
