I have a very strong interest in the links between crime, disorder and regeneration of poor places. Today, I’m ploughing through the work of Harvard sociologist, Rob Sampson, including last year’s BJS Lecture, in The British Journal of Sociology (BJS, 2009), Sampson’s debate with Prof Sennett, Sampson’s interview with Laurie Taylor on Thinking Allowed, and Getting to Grips with Disorder. Much develops the research of the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighbourhoods.
