Berlusconi reviews 5Is

Well, Giulia Berlusconi actually! In European Journal on Criminal Policy and Research, online first.

“The clarity of the style makes the book enjoyable and allows the author’s reasoning to be easily followed. In Chapter 7, Ekblom identifies ground-level practitioners, delivery
managers, and policy makers as his principal audience. Given the extensive use of
examples from past crime-prevention projects, his book is actually a valid support for each
of these three groups in their work. The book may also be attractive to researchers and students in applied criminology, as the 5Is Framework is not only a practical, but also a research, tool.”
