"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
"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
