In recent years, Martin Innes has pioneered an innovative research programme which creatively and rigorously explores the many ramifications of the simple but profound truth that ‘some incidents matter more than others in shaping public sentiments about crime, disorder and control’. Signal Crimes brings together Innes’ work in this field, covering substantive topics as varied as terrorism, murder and low-level urban disorder, as well as penetrating observations on methodology. It is a vital text.
