|Title:||Introduction - There's crime out there, but not as we know it: Rural criminology - the last frontier||Contributor(s):||Scott, John (author) ; Hogg, Russell George (author); Barclay, Elaine (author); Donnermeyer, JF (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2181||Abstract:||The idea that crime is a predominantly urban phenomenon has been pervasive in criminology, so much so that Australian criminology textbooks do not recognise rural crime as a distinct phenomenon worthy of scholarly attention (see Chappell & Wilson, 2000; Goldsmith et al, 2003; White & Haines, 2004; White & Habibis, 2005). There are no chapters or sections in Australian texts which specifically examine rural crime, despite the inclusion of a range of topics that appear to provide a broad coverage of crime in its many temporal and spatial dimensions. Nor is there so much as an index reference to "rural" issues in criminology textbooks. The standardised syllabus for crime texts provides coverage of topics such as violent crime, public crime, delinquency, race and crime, gender and crime, and crime and social class. This canon is mirrored in international texts, most of which also fail to address the issue of rural crime, but make abundant reference to crime in various urban contexts (see Carrabine et al, 2004; Conklin, 2004). This is not to suggest that Australian texts fail to localise their subject matter.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Crime in Rural Australia, p. 1-12||Publisher:||Federation Press||Place of Publication:||Annandale, N.S.W.||ISBN:||9781862876354
