  • Amherst is subject of new book on preventing delinquency

    In the Media - 10/22/2014

    Amherst’s role in creating its reputation as one of the safest cities in the United States is now the subject of a new book.
    Criminologist Simon Singer, a professor at Northeastern University, will be at the University at Buffalo next month to present two free talks about his book, “America’s Safest City: Delinquency and Modernity in Suburbia.”

    Singer’s book explains how a large suburb like Amherst can be viewed as a modern-day, 21st century city, in part, because of its success in preventing its middle-class youth from becoming high-delinquency offenders.
