• What is anti-social behaviour?
• Can it be dealt with effectively?
• Is the problem exagerated?
From the Daily Mail's claim of Britain being named `Yob Capital of Europe?, to the headline in The Times of `Tearaway given ASBO at 10?, the subject of anti-social behaviour has been given a huge amount of political, social, media, public policy and academic interest in recent years.
Using lively case studies and examples, Andrew Millie introduces the concept of anti-social behaviour (ASB) and examines its implications for society in the 21st century. The chapters explore:
• The origins of the term
• Different causes and types of ASB
• Theoretical framewords for ASB and ASB control
• How the UK deals with ASB compared to other countries
• The rise of the ASBO
• Alternative enforcement options
• Methods of prevention
• The future for ASB
Anti-Social Behaviour is fascinating reading for all Criminology, Sociology and Social Policy students.
