en Limba Engleză Paperback – March 2007
Contemporary rural crime is more varied and sophisticated than it once was. The new forms range from agricultural crimes, such as the theft of water designated for agricultural production to environmental crimes such as the illegal dumping of waste. They take place side by side with traditional rural crimes such as cattle duffing while urban crimes such as drug and alcohol abuse and violent assaults are also prevalent, and on the rise. Crime in Rural Australia covers them all. It brings together leading academics who examine the major dimensions of crime and justice in rural and regional Australia including: the extent of rural crime, farm crime, violence, juvenile crime, policing, Indigenous crime and justice, crime prevention, drugs, fear of crime, and sentencing and punishment.It includes vignettes on rural policing and the stock squad from the perspectives of the NSW police. An ideal text for rural crime and criminology courses, Crime in Rural Australia will also be of interest to criminal justice practitioners, policy-makers, and criminology scholars.
