Fixing Broken Windows

by George L. Kelling & Catherine M. Coles


The authors show that the key to reducing crime is the restoration of order, starting with the smallest of disorder, elimination of graffiti.

"A cogent and compelling how-to-cut-crime book that truly should be read by every police officer, every town-watch organizer, every lawmaker, every policy analyst and every open-minded civil libertarian in America....Mr. Kelling and Miss Coles demonstrate clearly that the broken window thesis is 100 percent correct"
