• Brunton-Smith, Jackson and Sutherland discuss the link between neighbourhood characteristics and public beliefs and worries about neighbourhood violence using data from 61,436 face-to-face interviews across London.
• Bradford, Murphy and Jackson examine the links between procedural justice, social identity and legitimacy in the context of policing in Australia.
• Garland and Hodkinson explore the developing notion of hate crime with particular emphasis on alternative subcultures such as ‘Goths’. Their evidence raises the question of whether hate crime can, or should be, extended beyond recognized minority groups.
