This volume is dedicated to the International Crime (Victim) Survey. It describes the intent of the survey, and the possibilities and limitations of measuring crime and comparing data internationally. The authors trace the development of the project and presents findings from the 2001 survey, including gender and age differences in crime victimization, fear of crime in different countries, attitudes to punishment in different countries, and future intentions and implications of the ICVS.
