This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the role of crime, community, and urban policy in urban renaissance in Great Britain. The book discusses the theoretical and conceptual underpinnings of the urban renaissance and crime and disorder agendas, and their growing intersection. It also examines in detail existing and emerging political agendas and policies, and explores in depth different aspects of the role of communities within the emergent crime and renewal agenda. One of the author's core contentions in the book is that criminal-justice and policing systems have extended their remit and relevance to urban policy and regeneration initiatives through a process of ‘governing through crime’.
