Review Quotes
Probation Journal

“ . . . an excellent example of its type and, in particular, provides a concentration upon those specifically rural dimensions which are most often missing within an urban-dominated literature . . . These, and a wealth of other findings, make this modestly-priced book a rewarding as well as informative investment for any probation library.” –Probation Journal

British Journal of Criminology

“ . . . an extremely thorough review of crime statistics, crime surveys and an example of the sorts of issues addressed in a local crime survey. I would put it in the undergraduate/general reader market where I am sure it will be highly thought of.” –British Journal of Criminology

Labour Campaign for Criminal Justice Newsletter

“A useful little primer on the use and misuse of official statistics on crime and victimisation. Indeed everything you wanted to know about crime surveys, their content and methodology, strengths and weaknesses.” –Labour Campaign for Criminal Justice Newsletter
