Is either a selfish choice an aberration; or a forced choice the product of social factors These two stories continue to dominate both our views of and responses to crime And says Tom Gash they are completely wrong     In seeking to dispel the myths that surround and inform our views of c. Is crime a selfish choice which can only be deterred through the full force of the law and carceral punishment or is crime the product of socioeconomic deprivations which should be tackled by modifying the social structures which force people into crime Well both and neither according to Tom Gash In this book he tackles some of the main preconceptions which dominate both views on crime which he respectively labels the Heroes and Villain and Victims and Survivors approaches by unpacking 11 common myths These include among others the idea that police on the beat and tougher sentences are the most effective ways to reduce crime that most crime is highly professional or that poverty is a direct cause of crime In each chapter he carefully unpacks these claims drawing on extensive data and a wealth of secondary research he shows how the reality of crime is often far complex than the prevailing conceptions that we have of it Overall he presents a nuanced explanation of crime and avoids overly lambasting either the Heroes and Villain or Victims and Survivors viewpoints which would have been easy to do Instead he engages with them to deftly show that they all too often rely on assumptions that are often not backed up by solid research The author himself appears to align with the situational approach to crime which places the emphasis for crime prevention on addressing the circumstances which facilitate crime ie reducing the temptation of crime and on recognising that there exist many guardians of social order alongside the police which can be mobilised in support of anti crime measures Wherever you stand on the Villains Heroes spectrum this is a highly readable and insightful book which is sure to challenge your beliefs about criminality

How our views of crime and its causes are wrong and how we can begin to understand and tackle it properly      The way we see and understand crime falls into two types of story that in essence have been told and retold many times throughout human history in fiction as in fact Criminality. If I was to sum this book s premise in a uestion it would be Life is complicated why would you think crime would be any different Attempting to both dismiss the common myths about crime such as poverty causes crime and criminals such as they ll stop at nothing the book is also written to explain how crime can be reduced based on collected evidenceThe points raised are certainly interesting and really challenge some common perspectives with some recent and historical studies The author s primary point is that crime is caused by many factors both personal environmental and opportunistic I feel the book could have been greatly improved by summarising all the points made on causal factors for ease of reading My main concern with the book however is that while it delivers on the first half of its aim dispelling myths it doesn t deliver well on how crime can be reduced There are only a small number of specific examples provided which gives the impression of there being many explanations of what doesn t cause crime but not a lot of information on what prevents itThe author would likely argue that there isn t any one solution to a particular type of crime and for this I agree However a principle based analysis and approach to trialling solutions could have been better detailed in the book as it stands you can build such an approach having read the book but again I feel you have to work for it a bit than you shouldI think any policy practitioner working in the justice portfolio should read this book35 starsTopics and keywords Crime Current Affairs Iconoclast Policy

    An interesting and accessible overview of the research into crime it's causes and the motivation and circumstances of criminals The comparison to the two dominant theories of crime was interesting and referred to a bit throughout but it didn't create as coherent an overview as I was expecting Perhaps I wanted too easy an answer It did feel that the references in each section to other related 'myths' would have been helpful if I d

    Mr Gash is uite selective in his crime interests mostly 'working class' crime I'd have liked to know about tax evasion and fiddling MPs' expenses is that nature or nurture?; entering into contracts that mean a person takes no responsibility for catastrophes they've helped cause bankers anyone?; and the causes of domestic violence gaslighting and general street abuse Curiously however Mr Gash doesn't address that He's also clearly

    An interesting and important read but at times a bit arduous and repetitive feeling It's a good exploration of lots of elements of crime so acts as an introductionjumping off point for understanding the issues This was particularly helpful as a law student reading out of interest in sociologicalcriminological methods and
