The whole questions of the role of nuclear deterrence in U.S. strategic policy deserves a robust national debate, and Dr. Payne's insightful, timely and exceedingly well-documented analysis in The Great American Gamble is a perfect place to begin. For many who read his book, it is also likely where it will end. -- --Senator Charles Robb5/5(3). Displacement, Not Deterrence (July ) by tibben Published July 9, Updated Janu Nancy Hiemstra, Stony Brook University. Security measures that deter crime may unwittingly displace it to neighboring areas, but evidence of displacement is scarce. We exploit precise information on the timing and locations of all Italian bank robberies and security guard hirings/firings over a decade to estimate deterrence and displacement effects of : Vikram Maheshri, Giovanni Mastrobuoni, Giovanni Mastrobuoni, Giovanni Mastrobuoni. As a concept, deterrence has launched a thousand books and articles. It has dominated Western strategic thinking for more than four decades. In this important and groundbreaking new book, Lawrence Freedman develops a distinctive approach to the evaluation of deterrence as both a state of mind and a strategic option.
Short, insightful, and well written. You can't ask for much more from a book on international political theory. Published in , Deterrence addresses the theory of deterrence as it was shortly the United States invaded Iraq, animated by the alternative idea of pre-emption. Freedman is not beholden to a single theory of international relations unlike many other scholars in his field/5. Displacement, Not Deterrence Nancy Hiemstra A logic of deterrence has anchored U.S. immigration enforcement for the last three decades, which rests on the assumption that tougher policies discourage people from migrating in the first by: 1. The magnitude of the displacement depends on the distance between the two regions and on their relative size. For given sized neighbors, a closer distance implies greater displacement. deterrence theory is correct, then to reduce crime, the correctional system should be orga-nized to maximize the pain of crime and to minimize its benefits. Its whole aim should be to scare people straight—those who have engaged in crime (specific deterrence) and those who are thinking about committing crime (general deterrence).
The general deterrence theory is well suited in strengthening the security policies of an organisation and assessing and evaluating the effectiveness and . Another problematic factor is the inordinate level of fear of crime. The fear far exceeds the actual amount of crime, and affects many individuals who never have been, and may never be, victims of a crime. Crime prevention must be cognizant of both the real and perceived levels of crime and must be prepared to attack crime in all its aspects. Neither deterrence nor rational choice theory is a general or complete model of criminal behavior. The central concepts and propositions in each-fear of legal punishment in deterrence theory and the reward/cost balance (or expected utility function) in ra- tional choice theory-are subsumable under the more general dif- Cited by: Reppetto () published crime displacement theory in Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency and put forward his theoretical underpinnings for the future analysis of crime displacement phenomenon and outlined five types of crime displacement such as: 1.
