"In this unique and original book, Peter St. Jean examines why some blocks in urban areas experience more crime than others. Based on a number of sources - most importantly, in-depth interviews with drug dealers and routine robbers about their strategies for selecting a location or victim - St. Jean finds pitfalls in both broken windows and collective efficacy theories, while proposing a promising new alternative." - Mario Luis Small, author of Villa Victoria: The Transformation of Social Capital in a Boston Barrio"
