Retooling for Growth: Building a 21st Century Economy in America's Older Industrial Areas (American Assembly)

Gradual activity progress, declining domestic values, a diminishing tax base, and centred poverty are yet some of the growing to be stumbling blocks for well-established yet suffering towns. Challenged through many years of globalization, technological switch, and dramatic demographic shifts clear of the city center, those former business powerhouses—particularly within the Northeast and Midwest—have been eclipsed by means of burgeoning American towns with a potential area of interest within the new financial system.

The Responsible Contract Manager: Protecting the Public Interest in an Outsourced World (Public Management and Change)

Agreement administration is a serious ability for all modern public managers. As extra govt tasks are shriveled out, managers needs to discover ways to coordinate and degree the functionality of personal contractors, and to put in writing agreement requisites and elicit bids that receive vital services on the very best fee and caliber.

Biophilic Cities: Integrating Nature into Urban Design and Planning

Tim Beatley has lengthy been a pacesetter in advocating for the "greening" of towns. yet too usually, he notes, city greening efforts concentrate on every little thing other than nature, emphasizing such parts as public transit, renewable strength construction, and effort effective development structures. whereas those are vital features of reimagining city dwelling, they don't seem to be adequate, says Beatley.

Example text

Punitive strategies, including those designed to exact revenge and retribution, were ineffective, in his view: they clearly failed to prevent crime. Rather, Jeffrey proposed a crime prevention model based on moulding reward and punishment stimulations. Since the physical environment provided pleasurable or painful feedback to individuals such that they learned to change their behaviour to maximise or minimise pleasure or pain as the case might be, changes to the environment therefore held the key to real crime prevention, inasmuch as it could be modified to reward (or punish) offending behaviour.

On-the-ground strategies must therefore be tailored to local needs, although some similar principles can be seen at work across many contexts. Despite these limitations, without these place-based crime prevention theories we might still be focused solely on the psychological dispositions of offenders and on their socio-economic settings instead of considering what we now know to be important predictors and modifiers of criminal events that relate to the use, management, design and opportunity structure of the built environment.

We then use these conclusions to reflect both on the state of development in the field and on a research agenda in relation to some of its most pressing issues. Concluding remarks A book written by authors who are respectively American and British is likely, other things being equal, to reflect to a very considerable extent the situation in the United States and the United Kingdom. This book does indeed do so. Since many of the developments that have taken place in the field of planning for crime prevention have been in those two countries, however, we make no apologies for this.
