This authoritative and comprehensive collection contains the most
important published papers and articles on the economics of crime.

essential reference source for both researchers and policymakers.
The book examines the theory and methodology of the economics of
law enforcement and crime prevention as they affect both public
authorities and private individuals. It explores the economics of
organized crime from the point of view of the criminal, but also
considers the costs to the community of criminal acts and their
effects. It studies the causes of crime and the costs and
effectiveness of deterrence and punishment. The editors have
written a new authoritative introduction which gives a wide-ranging
overview of the topics covered.
