Rural Transformations and Rural Crime

What are the theoretical and conceptual framings of rural criminology across the world? Thinking creatively about the challenges of rural crime and policing, in this stimulating collection of essays experts in this emerging field draw from theories of modernity, feminism, climate change, left realism and globalisation.

This first book in the Research in Rural Crime series offers state-of-the-art scholarship from across the globe, and considers the future agenda for the discipline.

“An important exploration of rural change and its implications for crime, drawing on a range of theoretical approaches and maintaining a global focus.” Ralph Weisheit, Illinois State University

“A window on the emerging world of rural criminology from established and early career scholars, identifying knowledge and theoretical advances, and gaps that others will surely be motivated to fill.” Daniel Gilling, University of Plymouth
