Publication Date

This edited collection illuminates the weaknesses and strengths of crime reporting across a wide range of countries, with a focus on democratic countries in which the police bear some accountability to citizens.  In one compendium, for the first time, this book documents how different countries record (or fail to record) crimes.  With chapters written by native authors who are experts on the practices of their respective countries, the book explores practices in 15 different countries across the globe.
