Product Description

Product Description

Crime involving cars – whether involving offences by drivers or theft of and from cars – represents a substantial proportion of offences committed, and occupies an enormous amount of police time. But it is not always perceived as the serious crime that it is: many traffic offences cause enormous harm in terms of death and injury, but are often not regarded seriously by drivers, the criminal justice system and the state. Other than theft of and from cars it is arguable that car crime is socially constructed as 'not real crime' or 'not even crime'. This book is the first to survey the whole area of car crime. It considers car crime as a coherent whole, addressing the concept of car culture; considers car crime in its various guides in relation to issues such as masculinity, gender, car usage and the environment; considers the historical roots of legislation concerning crime committed in the car, through to current legislation and its effects and implications. The book also addresses issues of crime prevention, and in particular the role of car manufacturers in making cars more crime proof.

5.0 out of 5 stars best book on car crime 15 Feb 2009
By Nino Kometiani - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Considering not big choice that we have today in books about car crimes, I purchased this book and I'm very glad. It's an excellent quality book (as all the books of Willan Publishing) and contains all the detailed account on this specific type of crime. I even found the seperate chapter about theft from car which is not considered under "car crimes" in my country, we have it separately. This book is useful for criminal lawyers(like me) and for criminologists because the book gives information interesting for any of the people mentioned above.
