    Abstract:
      Mark Shaw considers the nature of crime in societies in transition, and focuses on the causal factors for increased levels of crime during periods of political, economic and social change. He argues that evidence that the fight against crime in transitional societies is being won is far from conclusive, and a series of policy dilemmas that confront such societies are presented.

    Abstract:
      Michael Kempa and Clifford Shearing (in collaboration with John Cartwright and Madeleine Jenneker) examine the multiple 'nodes' of policing in the global era. Through focusing upon the illustrative examples of South Africa and Northern Ireland, a range of normative concerns that are associated with the proliferation of non-state policing and disorder intolerant public policing are identified, and two adaptive policy responses to these concerns are explored.

    • Farmers -- Violence against -- South Africa.
    • Police, Rural -- South Africa.
    • Rural crimes -- South Africa.
    Abstract:
      Bronwen Manby examines violent crime on the South African farm as well as government responses to this type of crime, in the shape of the 'rural protection plan'. She argues that while there are deficiencies in the response to violent crime against farm owners, the system has tended to favour protection of farm owners over other farm residents
