Certainly a must book for those who are interested in rural crime and delinquency. Because about 90 percent of local policing in America is carried out in small towns and rural areas, the text is an essential supplement to law enforcement courses. It is well informed, balanced, and well written. Both students and instructors will richly benefit from it. -Theodore N. Ferdinand, Southern Illinois University. Excellent insight into issues that confront the rural community. John Campbell, St. Cloud State University. Outstanding source on a largely neglected topic. Clearly written and engaging-perfect for college students. E. J. Williams, Fayetteville State University.

While most researchers see the urban setting as being the only laboratory for studying crime problems throughout the United States, Crime and Policing in Rural and Small-Town America directly challenges this notion with an authoritative look at crime and the criminal justice system in rural America today. The assumption that rural crime is rare and comparable across various communities has led to incompatible theories and irrelevant practices. In order to transform this misconstruction, the Third Edition offers a clear outline of the definition of rural and provides a vital argument for why rural and small-town crime should be studied more than it is. The book also explores the individual nature of issues that emerge in these communities, including illegal drug production, domestic violence, agricultural crimes, rural poverty, and gangs, in addition to the training needs of rural police, probation in rural areas, and rural jails and prisons. Responding to rural crime requires an awareness of its context and how justice is carried out, as well as an appreciation of how features vary across rural areas. Understanding the relationships among crime, geography, and culture in the rural setting can reveal useful ideas and implications for crime and justice in communities across the United States.

I used this book to supplement my research for my capstone paper for my B.S. in Criminal Justice. Easy to understand and read, and it is easy to use the index to find topics relevant to your research.

I moved from the city to a rural community to be a police officer. I bought this book to possibly get some information on policing in a rural environment in order to be more effective. What I got was the author telling the reader that not much is known about rural policing and more research needs to be done. It was ok as a text book, but not very enlightening.
