    DescriptionThis book is the first comprehensive volume, exploring an issue of growing importance to policy makers, academics, housing practitioners and students. It brings together contributions from the most prominent scholars in the field to provide a range of theoretical perspectives, critical analysis and empirical research findings about the role of housing and urban governance in addressing anti-social behaviour. Contributors assess constructions of anti-social behaviour in policy discourse, identify how housing is increasingly central to the governance of anti-social behaviour, and critically evaluate a wide range of measures used by housing and other agencies to tackle what is perceived to be a growing social problem. Although the book focuses on the UK, comparative international perspectives are provided from France, Australia and the United States. The book covers definitions of anti-social behaviour and policy responses, including key new legislation and the legal role of social landlords in governing anti-social behaviour. There is comprehensive coverage of key measures including eviction, probationary tenancies, Anti-social Behaviour Orders, mediation and Acceptable Behaviour Contracts, and of innovative developments, such as gated communities, intensive support services and the use of private security. "Housing, Urban Governance And Anti-social Behaviour" will be of interest to academics, policy-makers, practitioners and students in the fields of housing, urban studies, social policy, legal studies and criminology.

    Review quote
    "The ever-expanding governance of behaviour has its roots in social housing, and this timely volume brings together a range of housing and neighbourhood studies looking critically at the treatment, and concept, of anti-social behaviour. It deserves a wide readership not only within housing studies but by anyone seeking to understand the developing politics of behaviour." Elizabeth Burney, Institute of Criminology, Cambridge University "This book brings together leading researchers from the UK and overseas to examine how anti-social behaviour is being tackled by an increasing number of agencies and a wide range of techniques. It identifies the ambiguities which exist between the rhetoric of policy and day-to-day practice, and raises the question of whether the Government is really being 'tough on ASB as well as tough on the causes of ASB.'" Ade Kearns, Department of Urban Studies, University of Glasgow
