Just what is the fear of crime and how does it impact upon the lives of the citizens of late modern societies? These are topical questions in an era when politicians compete to diagnose and respond to our worries, when newspapers are sold on the hookMoreJust what is the fear of crime and how does it impact upon the lives of the citizens of late modern societies?

These are topical questions in an era when politicians compete to diagnose and respond to our worries, when newspapers are sold on the hook of our anxieties and when fortunes are made promoting the latest security technology for the home and the high street.

How can the social sciences contribute to this part of the self-understanding of our times? This book presents empirical and conceptual work on the questions of fear, anxiety, risk and trust - both as problems of everyday living and as key themes in the culture and politics of contemporary western societies.

The volume includes contributions from distinguished social researchers from Britain, the United States, Germany and Italy and should be of interest to academics and students in the areas of criminology and sociology.
