Few security books qualify as great. This is one of them. It is a stimulating study of crime prevention brewed by the foremost experts in the field. The book masterfully counterpoints theory and substance, concept and reality, strategy and execution. The references read like a Who's Who in crime prevention and environmental design. This is an excellent publication that should be required reading for anyone involved in crime prevention. - Security Management
