Mesurer la délinquance


First Edition



This book brings a strictly scientific perspective to the measurement of crimes arguing for three major changes: an analyse over the long term, an evaluation method no longer monopolized by the most powerful and an urgente evaluation of financial crime. Read More

Unfounded or contradictory assertions about the evolution and seriousness of crime pollute a controversy fed by cherry-picked statistics and the State's monopoly on resources and punishment.

This work brings a scientific perspective to the evaluation of crime. Taking into account the history of survey methods and their contemporary updates, the authors reveal the most significant evolutions in crime: increasing theft echoing the rise of consumerism since the 1960s, higher rates of violent robbery and violent street crime starting in the 1980s (an era of social splintering), and the focus, since the 2000s, on repression efforts concentrated more on the defense of public order (illegal substance trafficking, illegal immigration) than on the security of the citizen.

The book argues for three major changes: a survey of crime analyzed over the long term; an evaluation method no longer monopolized by the most powerful and which combines diverse types of data; and an urgent re-launch of the evaluation of financial and white-collar crime.

An indispensable diagnostic for comprehending the present status of crime.

The Numbers of Crime

- Books&Ideas.net May 8, 2012

"When it comes to delinquency, the press, as well as political discourse, tends to emphasize the "crime angle" over the “sociological angle.” Moreover, when quantitative data is used in public debate, trust in statistics is low. Philippe Robert's and Renée Zauberman’s new book may suggest a way out of this unfortunate situation. "

" [...] The book is thus an excellent tool for democratizing delinquency measures."
