About this work

Description

When the figures say crime is falling, why are we more frightened than ever? Could our towns and cities be creating fear and mistrust? This passionate book shows us the face of Britain today, revealing the untested urban planning that is changing not only our cities, but the nature of public space, of citizenship and of trust.
