Item description for Fear of Crime among Inner-City African Americans (Criminal Justice: Recent Scholarship) (Criminal Justice Recent Scholarship) by Yolanda M. Scott...
Scott uses a systemic social-control approach to explain inner-city African Americans' fear of crime from their perspective. Perceptions of neighborhood disorder (intra-community control) and views of local police (extra-community control) predict fear of local violent and property crime. Perceived crime-risk is a mediating factor between these fears and the two systemic factors. The systemic argument was supported: perceived local disorder and negative views of police increased residents' fear of crime. Central to any reduction in inner-city African Americans' fear of crime is their perception that there be strong intra- and extra-community control barriers between themselves and crime.
