    On the basis of case-studies of eight cities – Bangkok, Bogotá, Lagos, Nairobi, San JosŽ, Singapore, Tokyo, and Warsaw – the authors present an analysis of crime trends, innovative measures adopted by state and local communities in preventing and controlling crime, the functioning of criminal justice systems, and, finally, juvenile delinquency.
